Families United for Education: School board election is on February 5th. They want to help get people out to vote! (for good candidates)
Black Mesa: Planning a week long training (mainly for non-native people) at the end of May or early June. (un)Occupy has been invited to participate and/or plan. We decided as a group that we would help plan/organize/coordinate and participate (which involves sending a few of our activists there for the training). Santhosh will be the contact. There are many important indigenous actions planned this summer. Would be great if we could send reps. from (un)Occupy. We will need to fundraise in order to be able to do this. From the UU speaker stipend: 30$ was given back to bail fund, and 20$ was given toward fund for summer actions.
Diversity of Tactics: Henry proposed to add to the movement agreements: “We embrace a diversity of tactics.” We will discuss the change further, and possibly decide, next Sunday.
The movement agreements as a whole need to be revisited. Hershe and Henry will work on this, and bring a draft to the GA.
S&S Topics: Sean will send links for (optional) topics of discussion on Mondays.
