6/12/17 Minutes: Robert’s Fundraiser, Book Presentation, Reading Group

In attendance: Jackson (moderator), Robert, Ty (secretary)
Start time: 7:10 PM

1. Robert’s Fundraising Idea – Robert came by to pitch his idea for a fundraiser a little further. It would involve us setting up a fundraising site on GroupRev, and sending him some interview questions about his activism for a story to accompany with it; we particularly want to focus on him as a disability advocate, environmental activist, and animal rights activist. We’ll try to get some questions drafted by next week’s meeting so we can send them his way in a timely manner, then Ty will draft up the fundraiser promotion and start sharing it on our social media as soon as everyone involved gives it the OK. We also were interested in getting some updates on his training milestones as he works towards the half marathon, in order to periodically update the information available on the fundraiser.

2. Event Review – DSA was at the BCH again for another study group, and Jackson reports that things went fine.

3. Upcoming Events – We have two events coming up: Tilted Scales is a legal collective touring through Lincoln, and we’re hosting their book presentation and community discussion. It’s this Friday, and besides setting up the room and getting a table ready for book display purposes, we’ll probably be fine. The person will need a place to stay for the night, which we can provide. We have $100 in the speaker fund, and we’ll see about buying the book and whatever else is available for sale with it.

We also have a reading group on Saturday. Jackson needs some help working the copier and printing off the reading in question but that’s about it as far as necessary set-up. We worked on that tonight.

Meeting adjourned: 7:53 PM
