1/15/17 Minutes: Spring Calendar Planning

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

1. Event Review – Popcorn Politics went well last week. Good turnout, decent discussion, but an intense movie. Maybe focus on more fun movies in the future, but it was too appropriate a movie for the subject matter we wanted to address to pass up.

2. Upcoming Event – We have a reading discussion this Saturday: 10 Things Every White Person Should Know When Talking About Race. Ty will take care of prepping and printing 15 copies of the reading.

3. Spring Calendar –
April:
April 21?, 1-3 PM – Reading Discussion: Fueling Dissent

May:
May 5, 12-5 PM – Open House Party for Karl Marx’s 200th Birthday
May 11, 8 AM-6 PM, and May 12, 8 AM-2 PM – The Black Cat House Yard Sale Fundraiser
