Get the Word Out!

Want to put your talents to use in the fight for justice and equality? Here’s a sampling of some of the ways you can help get the word out about the Centre for Gender Advocacy’s activities. Give us a call at 514-937-2110, email promotions[at]genderadvocacy.org, or drop by our office at 1500 de Maisonneuve West, Suite 404.

1. Postering and Flyering

For every event, campaign and service the we organize, there is much promotional material to be distributed. Not only do we try and reach as many students as possible, but we also serve the larger Montreal community. We always need your help to put up posters and bring stacks of fliers to events.

2. Designing Promotional Material

A picture is worth a thousand words, and a well-worded message can be very powerful. For every event, campaign, or service we promote, we strive to capture the public’s imagination. If you are artistically inclined and are interested in designing posters, flyers, pamphlets, t-shirts, buttons, or anything else, get in touch to find out about our current promotional needs.

3. Tabling

We try to attend as many events hosted by our social justice allies as we can to set up tables of promotional material, make connections and spread awareness of who we are and what we do. If you would like us to table at your event please email promotions[at]genderadvocacy.org or call 514-937-2110.

4. Online Blasting

Almost anything we promote can benefit from as wide and far an online blast as possible. The more people who are forwarding email, facebook and twitter call-outs and invitations to their friends and networks, and asking that they do the same, the better. Personal messages sent to friends or contacts are even more effective! Feel free at any time to blast the Centre for Gender Advocacy’s online material.

5. Media Outreach

Whether independent or corporate, it’s very important to foster good relationships with media outlets and individual journalists Whether you are a media-maker, you’d like to share some of your media contacts, or you are simply interested in improving your media communication skills, get in touch with us to find out how you can help!

6. Classroom or other Announcements

You are in summer school. Or you are involved in a group that holds meetings. Or your place of work is a friendly, receptive place. No matter what your involvements, the health of any promotional strategy relies on in-person announcements. If you like short, sweet, concise public speaking stints, contact us and we’ll let you know what needs announcing!

7. Phoning and Texting

In this age of impersonal online communication, a personal phone call really stands out. Taking a few minutes to let your friends and family know about our events can be more effective that a mass email to hundreds.

8. Join the Centre′s Volunteer Committee!

If you are interested in getting involved in any of the ways listed above, and want to sustain your involvement while getting to know like-minded people, you are invited to join the Centre’s Volunteer Committee. Joining the Committee generally entails a meeting every 2 weeks or so, but is open to all willing volunteers, no matter what your availability.
