It’s April, and we are seeing the beginning of spring, and the hope new era “Post-COVID-19” We are not there yet, but we are inching ever closer. While we will still take precautions, wear masks, and distance where possible, it’s going to feel a lot less isolating. And, what better way to celebrate the numbers dropping, than getting active in your community?
Registering friends to vote, getting active on boards and councils, and caucusing are all worthy and easy ways to create the community you want. Volunteering for food banks, or whatever strikes your heart chords will brighten your day and others. Change is made by those who show up.
Not sure how to connect to volunteering? Volunteers of America/Utah will help you find a place to offer your services.
Registering voters, and keeping apprised of what’s happening is always on-trend: The Utah League of Women’s Voters has all the info (for all genders).
People that show up create their communities. Here is how and where Councils need you! Advisory Boards need you! And your caucus needs you!
