Volunteer Needs - Drivers, Greeters, Set up, Clean up

Do you have a van you can drive SeaTac-Nisqually, to pick up indigenous leaders and transport them to the Conference site on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and/or Friday, or from Nisqually to SeaTac on Sunday/Monday? If you cannot drive yourself but have a van to lend -- or can drive but don't have a van --  we can coordinate your offering!  Let us know by emailing info@backbonecampaign.org

Can you help with Set Up Day on Tuesday, June 26th, to construct tents, organize workshop spaces, and help with other hand on infrastructure needs? Email info@backbonecampaign.org

A Hospitality Crew is needed Wednesday to help greet arrivals, get personal tents set up.  If you can help out this day, email info@backbonecampaign.org
