Those interested in volunteering for the 2020 Democratic National Convention can sign up for opportunities via a new web portal.
“The 2020 Democratic National Convention simply would not be possible without a robust, diverse, and engaged team of 15,000 volunteers,” Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee President Liz Gilbert said in a release. “With the launch of our official volunteer portal, the Host Committee is thrilled to capitalize on the excitement we’ve seen from those interested in volunteering and invite those individuals to begin this historic journey with us.”
According to the release, more than 10,000 people have expressed interest in volunteering.
The host committee is partnering with the Milwaukee Public Library, which will have a computer at each of its 13 branches dedicated to volunteer signups.
“Our mission at Milwaukee Public Library is to help residents read, learn, and connect — not only to our resources but also with each other and with their community,” Milwaukee Public Library Director Paula Kiely said in the release. “As we look to promote civic literacy and engagement throughout the city, we’re proud to support the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee in their efforts to reach volunteers from every neighborhood.”
