Volunteers Needed

Our new Speakers Bureau Director, Shaleen Title, recently sent this email to all LEAP members:

"Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is seeking professional, articulate volunteers to support LEAP by booking speaking engagements in your area.

LEAP is growing quickly as more and more distinguished members of law enforcement join us to speak out about the harms caused by our current drug policies. As you know, LEAP's strategy is to send our respected and credible speakers out to explain this issue to captive audiences. We want to utilize each speaker to their maximum potential and reach as many new people as possible, so we are seeking volunteers to help us put our speakers in front of audiences across the United States and abroad.

Because of the training involved, we ask volunteers to commit to 1-2 hours per week. You'll be reaching out to civic clubs, universities, churches, and other groups in your area to book our speakers. We will train you to call on these groups as a member of LEAP and explain why they should be interested in hosting a LEAP speaker. As a token of appreciation for your time and effort, we offer a small compensation for each gig you are able to arrange.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in advocacy, outreach, and event planning while helping to promote LEAP's message. If you are interested in volunteering, please email me with your name, city, country and relevant experience."
