5/2/16 Minutes: Fundraisers, Summer Calendar

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

1. Event Review: Jackson hosted Children of Men on Saturday. Turnout and discussion was good. We also had a May Day discussion, which was a fantastic event with good turnout. Radicals talking about labor on May Day is always a good thing. We were a little less prepared for it than we would’ve liked, couldn’t really stay focused on the Fight For $15 campaign, but a good discussion on labor rights in general came out of it regardless.

2. Upcoming Event: We have Chi-Raq coming up on Saturday! There’s not much prep that needs to be done.

3. Yard Sale: We can start sorting things for the sale on Sunday, until then we need to gather interest and see if we can collect some donation items. Another plug for donations should go up this week.

4. Fundraiser: The Social Justice Education Network is doing some crowdfunding for the organizer to be able to focus on doing their talks professionally. We can share the call for donations on our Facebook, as well as donating $20 ourselves.
