We’ve got an opportunity to be part of the Diversity Lounge at PAX East. But the table has to have someone there during open hours, 10am – 6pm. Seeing as how there’s one of mod cypheroftyr, that means we need community help!
If you are planning on going to PAX East anyway, and/or could attend without much financial support and would like to help us table there, email us [firstname.lastname@example.org] with the following information:
Email address to contact you
Hours you could volunteer for us (total per dayx)
If you are definitely attending PAX East and can help us
If you are planning on it, but are unsure and when you will decide on attending
Those volunteering for us will receive an Exhibitors Badge and we’ll provide a #INeedDiverseGames teeshirt with Volunteer on the back.
Please reply to us by February 22nd and we will confirm with you once we have final details from our contact at PAX East for the diversity lounge needs.
