Civic Engagement Assignment Volunteer Contacts
Remember that you can volunteer for any group related to politics or government (clear it with me). You need to do at least 8 hours total -- those hours could be split between 2 or more groups, but are usually better spent with a single group. You are responsible for contacting organizations and explaining why you are calling and how much work you are able/ willing to do. This list may grow with time.
