Volunteer Opportunities with Mn NORML

Some of Our Volunteer Roles:

  • Have a One-to-One meeting with someone who is interested in legalization or someone who is on the fence.  Tell them briefly about MN NORML, why you’re involved, and then practice active listening.  Hear the other person’s story and then connect the dots between her / his motivation and how it relates to MN NORML’s volunteer opportunities.
  • Host a MN NORML house meeting.  Set a date, time, and location for your house / community meeting.Find an experienced meeting facilitator.Show news / film clips about cannabis legalization.Have a group discussion and make plans to take some sort of action to further the legalization movement through MN NORML.
  • Write a letter to the editor (LTE) / help someone else write an LTE / attend a LTE writing group / host a LTE writing group.This is a fun and creative way to participate in MN NORML.  LTE writing groups hosts and trainers will receive guidance from MN NORML staff. 
  • Become an Official MN NORML public speaker / power point presenter.Write speeches / presentations of different lengths: 1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, or 30 minutes.  Share with MN ASAP staff / board members for revision suggestions.  Finally, make presentation to the MN NORML board for official endorsement. 
  • Join or Lead a “Sign Making Party”! When NORML does public demonstrations / rallies, we want nice hand-made signs that are on message.  This is a fun and important volunteer activity.

  • Researcher:  Do you love to read news articles, scholarly reports, and books about cannabis?  If so, you can help by summarizing and citing important information.  We would like volunteers with good research / writing skills to provide MN NORML with one-pagers on a range of cannabis-related issues, in a timely and up-to-date manner. 


  • Start a MN NORML Chapter in your area! Do you live in a town with no MN NORML group?  If so, would you be the right person to start one?
