Volunteer for a night at Coldplay?s ?Twisted Logic? tour and help build public support for the Make Trade Fair campaign. One of the summer?s biggest concerts is also a great opportunity for you to help end global poverty.
The members of Coldplay support the Make Trade Fair campaign and have asked Oxfam America to provide teams of volunteers at each concert. We are looking for responsible and reliable people over the age of 18 who enjoy talking to people, love music, and want to help promote fair trade and economic justice.
Global trade should be a route out of extreme poverty, but the rules of trade are rigged against poor countries. Oxfam America?s campaign to Make Trade Fair seeks to change the rules that prevent millions of people from making a decent wage.
As a volunteer, you will arrive a couple of hours before the show (typically around 5pm) and stay until a half-hour after the show (typically 11:30pm). You?ll meet fellow volunteers, set up an information table, get an orientation to the issues of Make Trade Fair, and ask concert goers to sign the global petition to Make Trade Fair. Typically you get to enjoy most of the concert, although we cannot guarantee a seat. Admission is free, and you also get to wear and keep a Make Trade Fair T-shirt.
This is a great way to have a lot of fun ? while creating public pressure to help end poverty.
Yes, I want to come! How do I sign-up?
