Volunteer for Outreach at Bike Swaps and Have Fun Gawking at Bike Gear

Help us grow our movement for better biking, walking and transit! Active Trans has booths at two upcoming bike swaps, and we're looking for volunteers to help work the booths. Working the booth involves promoting our work, as well as pitching and collecting Active Trans memberships. It'll be a fun time with other volunteers gawking at the bike gear. Please contact us if you're able to work one of the shifts below.
