All volunteers representing Love of Truth Ministries (“LOTM”) at a Justice Project Event (Outreach Event) are required to confirm in writing that they will abide by the terms of this Volunteer Agreement. If anyone refuses to or does not sign the agreement, that person will not be allowed to represent LOTM or the Justice Project at an Outreach as a volunteer.
Rules of Engagement at an Outreach: The volunteer will agree to the following rules:
1. I will never pressure anyone to participate in the outreach (poll, survey, brochure, etc.)
2. I may offer approved literature to passers-by, but will never push it on them.
3. I will always treat people with respect, even if they are angry and/or verbally abusive.
4. I will never trespass on private property or disrupt any event where an Outreach takes
5. If passers-by threaten LOTM property, I will attempt to call for law enforcement. I
will not attempt to physically stop anyone who makes such threats or attempts.
6. If passers-by threaten LOTM staff, volunteers (including myself), or others, I will
attempt to call for law enforcement officers. I will make reasonable efforts to remove others and myself from the presence of those making threats, but if I am unable to do that, I understand that I am allowed to take lawful steps to protect others and myself from injury.
7. I will condemn abortion-related violence in all forms.
Reflection Paper on Outreach: If asked, I will agree to write a short (1-2 page) typed reflection (within 2 weeks of the Outreach) of my experience at the outreach, including interaction with passers-by and how I was impacted, personally. With my permission, I will allow LOTM to share some or all of my written reflections with others.
Use of Photographs: I permit the use by LOTM of any video, photos, slides, films, or sketches of me taken while volunteering at an Outreach for publicity, advertising, promotion, or other non-commercial purpose.
I HAVE READ THE ABOVE VOLUNTEER AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THE WAIVER AND HOLD HARMLESS PROVISION ON THE REVERSE, AND BY SIGNNING IT AGREE TO ABIDE BY ITS TERMS. IT IS MY INTENTION TO EXEMPT AND RELIEVE THE ORGANIZIATION FROM LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL, INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR WRONGFUL DEATH CAUSED BY NEGLEGENCE OR ANY OTHER CAUSE.
