We commonly get asked “What is a Field Activist?”.  Simply stated, they are individuals acting locally and reporting regionally.  Field Activists put the act in activism through a variety of ways.  Field Activists donate time, services and money to the chapter.  Just like cannabis consumers and reform supporters, each Field Activist is unique.  But to give some examples, they:

  • Participate in letter writing campaigns.
  • Find business/retail locations where we can display our cards, brochures and donation boxes (and also make sure materials are always present!)
  • Monitor ongoing legislation at the local, state and federal level.
  • Engage with local, state and federal elected officials through email, phone, letter and/or attending town hall/listening sessions when these elected officials come to their local area (HINT:  There are many elected officials, on the state level 33 Senators and 99 Representatives, which sometimes hold these meetings the coincide with each other.  Local field activists pay attention and research when these opportunities are available and act upon them!)
  • Find and research concerts, fairs and other public events where we WOULD BE ALLOWED to table or have a booth.
  • Assist with new member recruitment and help with fundraising
  • Add content to website and social media campaigns
  • Help with chapter events
  • Testify during public hearings in Madison
  • Participate as during steering committee conversations
  • Collect signatures of support

 

 

Act locally, report regionally and assist in statewide campaigns.  Northern Wisconsin NORML has spearheaded this type of activism in their area and we are asking you to help NORML expand this type of program throughout the state.
