Volunteers Rising! is a group of volunteers that will be stewards of information, they will be keeping an eye out to see if anyone needs anything, they will know the plan for the day, how to escort people safely from the square if that is needed, they will also be able to direct people to resources if they are having a hard time.  We will have armbands!

This whole event could be upsetting and triggering. So many of us have been hurt or abused, are survivors or have loved ones that are survivors. We will do our best to care for each other and be aware of those around us. Volunteers Rising! Will be sensitive to this. You don’t need to be certified in anything to volunteer.

Please email – 1billionpgh@gmail.com if  you can help!
