Do you want to have a say in shaping Boston Workers Circle’s public voice? Are you a social media whiz? Do you love nothing more than writing gripping press releases? We have a volunteer opportunity for you! Meeting just once a month, with email/text conversations as necessary in between, the BWC Comms Team is easy to fit into your busy schedule! By joining the team, you can make a big difference.
We are guided as always by our fundamental organizational belief in people power. We are member-driven and member-led, and we know that our power comes from organizing and relationships, not social media posts. Communications is meant to serve the purpose of our organization; it is not the purpose of our organization. Our hope is that this team can help us do external communications better. We also hope this team can make our communications systems more democratic in addition to being more effective, so we wanted to share the new protocol we have for creating statements.
This team, which launched in the fall of 2022, was created in the hopes of creating a clearer system for BWC staff and members to develop BWC’s externally-facing communications, allowing us to become a more powerful, effective, cohesive, and strategic left voice in the Jewish community, and Jewish voice on the left. Through our work on this team, we have brought trainings to the BWC community on best practices in communication in BWC’s voice, issued statements on behalf of the community on important issues, and worked with committees to figure out the best ways to get their voices heard on the issues that are most important to them. We look forward to growing as a team and finding new ways to raise BWC’s visibility on important issues in the Jewish community and beyond. With your help, we’ll help BWC thrive!
We are currently accepting applications for new members of the BWC Communications team! Please let Mira know if you’re interested in learning more: email@example.com
This team is a collaboration between staff and member leaders and we need you! Again, it’s not a heavy lift in terms of time — just one meeting a month with occasional emails or texts between if something urgent arises.
