Why Do You Volunteer At SACHA?

Standard

It’s #NationalVolunteerWeek. We could go on and on about how important volunteers are at SACHA and how much we admire their amazingness – we already did in this post!

We thought we’d also hand the mic to our volunteers and let them explain why they give so much to SACHA:

“I volunteer at SACHA because it warms my heart to know there are so many wonderful feminists in the world! Thank goodness for SACHA!” – Katie, Take Back the Night volunteer

‘I love SACHA because it creates a wonderful human connection in a time of need and I fell like there are so few opportunities to share openly and be loving in response.’ – SACHA Support Line volunteer

“I volunteer at SACHA because I believe survivors.” – Jordan, Take Back the Night Committee Member

‘Volunteering at SACHA allows me to connect with other survivors. It’s helped me to learn skills that help in my everyday life. I love being part of a space that shares my values. I get to spend time with people who I never have to worry about them being oppressive.’ – SACHA Support Line volunteer

“I volunteer because I believe women have the right to own their own body; that women have the right to say NO; and that women have the right to walk the streets at any time without being attacked or harassed.” – Aileen, Take Back the Night Committee Member

“Being a SACHA volunteer has saved my life. The community is amazing and I love being able to help survivors.” – SACHA Support Line volunteer

“I love SACHA because being a part of this community opened up a voice and a space to explore and express ideas that aren’t always welcome! AND I love that this is work that is so inclusive and helpful.” – SACHA Support Line volunteer

“I was afraid to do this work before training and now I am surrounded by an amazing community of people to support me.” – SACHA Support Line volunteer

“I love SACHA because we have an amazing network of people who are supportive. SACHA has taught me so much. Being a SACHA volunteer is extremely rewarding.” – SACHA Support Line volunteer
