You’ve got the power and the passion to transform your community. By lending our voice to advocate for the causes and issues we care about, we can all be activists who affect the kind of change that makes our world a better place. Don't forget that you can make some of the most meaningful change within your own local community.
Many nonprofits are understaffed or operating on a small budget and can’t afford the marketing, HR, technology, or planning resources that their missions deserve. Consider giving your skills to help a nonprofit - get connected with Taproot+.
