What can I do to help the BRT?

 

 

 

In the spring of 2004, the BRT Administrative group laid the foundation for a BRT Volunteer Corps. The volunteers will ensure the the ability of the BRT to outreach to the entire campus community and also broaden the members of our community that are invested in social justice efforts. When implemented this group will enable the Bias Response Team to increase the speed of response to incidents of Bias, expand the scope of outreach programming, broaden awareness of the BRT through volunteer/acquaintance/community relationships, and provide training to individuals interested in creating safe and welcoming communities.

Each BRT volunteer will attend a two hour training. At the training topics will be covered including how to answer questions from community members, what to do after becoming aware of a bias incident and opportunties and expectations while at BRT outreach events. The training will ensure that a volunteer is comfortable talking to community members as part of an outreach team or even in one-on-one opportunties.

A BRT volunteer is not required to fulfill a quota of hours, but we do ask that if available, a volunteer be willing to help. Some volunteer shifts may be as short as 15 minutes! If you are interested, please contact the BRT GTF at 541-346-2037. You may also email the BRT at brt@uoregon.edu.

“Have a bias toward action - let's see something happen now.
You can break that big plan into small steps and take the first step right away.”
