RMM Advocate Pledge
As RMM lives into creating a just, rural New York, we invite you to become an RMM ADVOCATE. By becoming an RMM Advocate you commit to the following for a year:
1. Commit to ONE actions/activity EACH MONTH. We have listed below a number of possible actions/activities. In addition, we will be sending out through our electronic newsletter RMM NOTES each month other possibilities. We will provide the basics, we will be counting on you to be proactive!
2. Allow us to hold you up as an RMM Advocate.

Write a letter, or call your State senator, Assemblyperson or the Governor and tell them you want them to bring the Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act to the floor for a vote.
Read the Menu of Hope (it can be downloaded from the RMM website:
, under the section “Accompaniment”) and bring to the attention of your religious, civic, or union. Pages 9 – 14 of this Menu give numerous suggestions for important action on behalf of immigrants. Choose one and ACT.

Are you interested in a short term project? Please check a suggestion or write one in and we will contact you.

Coordinate volunteers out of our Poughkeepsie, Liberty, Lyons, or Riverhead offices.
Support RMM financially, perhaps by becoming a monthly RMM SUSTAINER. RMM can also now offer an automatic monthly draw down using credit card information.
Donate your car or van or truck (in good shape) to RMM. Transportation is an ongoing challenge for us, as it is for any organization whose focus is rural life.
Join our Transportation list – and we will call you from time to time to see if you are available to help us get our people to a program or meeting. (Note: for those who volunteer to work with youth, to ensure their safety, we do background checks and require safe space training.)
Help us recruit college interns for our internship program.
Organize a sale of bags or t-shirts designed and printed by youth-members of Bags for Justice, an RMM youth cooperative business.
Organize a Coins For Change Drive. What do you do with quarters, dimes and nickels at the end of a day? We suggest putting them in a jar as part of our Coins for Change effort.
Sign up to be on a roster of interpreters and translators. We have numerous events, actions, and situations where we need someone to help out.
Be a Journalist for RMM. We are engaged in so many important and interesting things, and we need someone who can help write about them.
Any other ideas, or things we should know?
