9/26/16 Minutes: Columbus Day

In attendance: Ju Ping, Ty (moderator)
Late: Jackson (secretary)

Start time: 7:10 PM

1. Event Review – Ju Ping’s Ubuntu workshop was on Saturday. He was able to help a couple of visitors who came by for technical assistance.

2. Columbus Day – There have been some changes in the larger Columbus Day rally at the Capitol, and it will now be starting later than initially discussed. The good news is that their rally no longer conflicts time-wise with ours; the bad news is that there seems to be some dissension and disorganization within that larger action. We have tentatively agreed to return to our original plan of holding our rally at the Federal Building from 5 to 6ish, and then possibly joining the Capitol rally for a little while as well at or just after 6. We’ve also learned that there will be a Columbus Day action in Omaha on the Saturday before the holiday, and we may investigate our options for participating in that as well.

3. Online Promotion – We spent some meeting time putting up Facebook events for October events.

Meeting adjourned: 8:30 PM

9/19/16 Minutes: Liberate Your Computer, October Events

In attendance: Jackson (moderator), Ty (secretary), Ju Ping, Wyatt
Start time: 7:00 PM

1. Event Review – We showed Just Do It, which had a bit of a technical hiccup but it was a great movie. The Resource Fair was also good, if lowkey.

2. Upcoming Event – Liberate Your Computer is coming up, and someone did stop by today on our porch to ask whether registering was required. We told them they didn’t need to and that they could stop by on Saturday whenever it was convenient.

3. Donation – Ju Ping is donating a physical copy of Just Do It to the library when the order comes in, as well as five thumb drives with Ubuntu pre-installed to give out during the Liberate Your Computer event. Jackson is also donating a copy of Dr. Strangelove to the library.

4. Treasury – Jackson updated the treasury information on the website. We’ve got some funds to put towards some projects if we get some good ideas!

5. October Events – The movie event for Joe Hill needs to be up and the DVD needs be bought. The discussion event for Capitalism and Debt also needs to be put up, and we will speak to Chris about it.

Meeting adjourned: 9:00 PM

Tabled items: Stuff to buy (canopy, stuff to secure bike rack, paper cutter)

Reminders: “Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?” for Winter Calendar

9/12/16 Minutes: Columbus Day Changes, Reimbursement

In attendance: Jackson (secretary), Ju Ping, Ty (moderator)
Start time: 7:00 PM

1. Event Review – We showed Dr. Strangelove on Friday. We’d hoped for a few more people, but we enjoyed the film and the discussion afterward.

2. Upcoming Event – We’re showing Just Do It this Friday. We have the movie, and we’re ready to go.

3. Tabling @ LGBTQA – Ty and Ju Ping will be tabling for us at a resource fair on Thursday. We’re making buttons tonight to hand out there.

4. Reimbursement – Ty needs to get repaid $7.78 for getting more handbills and button papers printed. We agree unanimously.

5. Columbus Day – Jackson has been notified of another Columbus Day action that has been organized at the same time as the one we’ve scheduled. We have tentatively decided to cancel our protest and join with their action. Jackson will be in communication with their organizers to see if we can be of any assistance.

Meeting adjourned: 8:05 PM

In attendance: Jackson (moderator), Ty (secretary), Ju Ping
Start time: 7:15 PM

1. Upcoming Event: Dr. Strangelove is on Friday, we own the DVD, we’re pretty good. We need to clean the collective space, but that’s about it.

2. LGBTQA+ Resource Fair: UNL’s LGBTQA+ Resource Center wants us to be at their resource fair, and we accepted it. We need to print out more handbills, and Ty will get 50 more sheets of them printed. We will also print out more pronoun buttons and get them pressed.

Meeting adjourned: 7:29 PM
