PLEASE NOTE: As of March 11, 2021, we have resumed in-person advocacy. We are currently accepting applications for volunteers who are willing to provide in-person medical advocacy services to survivors at our partner hospitals. We do not have remote opportunities for new volunteers at this time. We will continue to monitor COVID numbers as we balance the needs of survivors and safety of our staff and volunteers.
