Seeking Volunteer Travel Lead!

NWAAF is comprised of a volunteer working-board, volunteer hotline advocates, and two part-time staff to best serve our callers in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Currently, NWAAF is seeking a Volunteer Travel Lead centered in reproductive justice to provide compassionate, non-judgemental travel support to our hotline callers. The Volunteer Travel Lead will be responsible for the smooth operation of our practical support (travel) program and will supervise all travel support coordinators. You do not need to be an expert on travel or abortion;we are seeking someone who is passionate about autonomy in healthcare, and is willing & eager to learn & to step into leadership.

NWAAF is committed to meaningful access to abortion for all individuals regardless of identities or circumstances. We believe in a vision of reproductive justice which includes compassion and safety for those accessing abortion, as well as those doing the access work and providing the abortions. We believe that abortion access intersects with racial, economic, and all other forms of oppression, and our work should and can be lead by those most impacted by oppression and inequitable access.

To apply, please email your resume with two references and cover letter which details why you would be a great fit for the volunteer position to volunteer@nwaafund.org. Include the position title in the subject line (ex: Travel Lead resume and cover letter) and resume/cover letter as attachments. The complete job description for this position can be found here. Applications will be accepted through August 21, 2019, with this position to begin September 2019.

Raise money for abortion care in the Northwest!

One of the most vital ways you can help people get access to the care and support they need is to ask 5 friends to chip in to provide financial support. This can help with the cost of a hotline caller’s health care or travel needs to get to their appointment.

All the tools you’ll need to succeed are already built into the platform - in just a couple of clicks you can launch your fundraiser and share it with your friends. Once you create your fundraiser, you’ll receive three emails from us with tips to help you meet your goal.
