2021 State Organizing Teams
The Recovery Advocacy Project is working to empower individuals passionate about recovery to apply to their state’s Organizing Team.
Your state Organizing Team is a team of equals that work with one another to listen to people in recovery (their family and supporters) in your state, identify unifying campaigns to rally around, and provide organizing tools, as well as guidance for community or legislative based solutions, towards those issues for the grassroots community to take action.
RAP is working to build an Organizing Team in each state that is welcoming to both new and seasoned team members.
RAP encourages people who’ve traditionally been marginalized and disenfranchised to apply to be a part of your State Organizing team. A diverse team, full of unique life experiences and perspectives, fosters vibrant and creative campaigns and solutions. A phrase borrowed from the disabilities rights movement speaks to RAP’s goal of inclusiveness on all levels for a stronger – unified movement – “Nothing about us, without us”
This will be a one year volunteer commitment.
Please take the time to read over the roles and commitments, apply, and encourage others in your network that could potentially be good additions to any state team to apply. All are welcome.
Role and commitment
Volunteerism in any growing advocacy movement requires responsibilities of stewardship. A stewardship is the caring for something that is larger than any one individual. The RAP state Organizing Teams will be focused on the movement/issues rather than any individual advocate.
RAP Organizing Teams prioritize what is being maintained and not on the person(s) doing the maintaining. Team members should put the communities they are organizing and grassroots advocates in their state first, and work to empower others to grow and thrive as community organizers.
The following is a list of roles and commitments to consider before applying to be a part of your state’s RAP Organizing Team
The Recovery Advocacy Project (RAP) is now accepting applications for state Organizing Teams. All are encouraged to apply. All RAP volunteer organizers in the past are required to reapply for the 2021 – 2022 volunteer term.
