Family-Friendly Movie Night: An American Tail

Reed brought up a Frank Little independent film and book that recently came out. And we could potentially discuss him or screen the film.

We had a discussion about national liberation movements and international solidarity, but as far as turning it into a discussion, we’d have to work on making sure it’s not overly theoretical and able to be accessible for folks who don’t know much about the topics.

Some ideas that were left over from the Fall Calendar planning:

Discussion Group: “10 things every white teacher should know when talking about race” (https://thecornerstoneforteachers.com/truth-for-teachers-podcast/10-things-every-white-teacher-know-talking-race)

January/February: Trans Clothing Exchange

Chris is interested in doing a presentation on Thomas Sankara.

Tabled items: Winter Calendar, Articles for Discussion, Graphic Designer, Stuff to Buy (canopy, stuff to secure bike rack, labels, 7×7 no-slip outdoor mat for porch, new SSD hard drive for public laptop

Meeting adjourned: 8:48 PM
