11/17/14 Minutes: Free Store, Calendar


In attendance: Ashley, Jackson (moderator), Sammi (moderator), Ty (secretary)

Start time: 7:00 PM

1. Event Review – We had a very busy week! Trekkies for Humanism was on Friday, and that went well. It’s still regularly drawing people. How to Do Protests turned out to be rather small due to the weather. Ty ended up taking on working on it at the last minute, and wishes he could do a powerpoint or another formal presentation. As it was, it turned out okay. It would be nice to get more people experienced in different methods of protests. The concert on Sunday was good!

2. Reimbursement – Jackson paid for printing buttons designs and fliers, for $4.82. He also paid for three CDs at the concert for $20. Altogether the collective reimbursed him $24.82.

3. Free Store – A person from the Midwestern Anarchist Federation is trying to open a free store. We’ve decided to donate to the $10 tier, which in addition to helping their cause also gets us a digital zine pack. Ashley’s going to take care of the details of paying on Indiegogo.

4. Calendar – We discussed whether to include our counter-protest to the anti-choice Walk to Life on the calendar, and we decided to leave it off the calendar and advertise for separately. We also discussed a location for the Winter Solstice Party, and Lazlo’s came up as a good option. Ashley’s going to start a group chat between Lincoln Secular Humanists and Lincoln Atheists to finalize which location.
