8/8/16 Minutes: Fall Calendar, Event Moderation

In attendance: Jackson (moderator), Ty (secretary)
Start time: 7:05 PM

1. Event Review – We had a good showing of Godzilla. The event turnout didn’t really reflect what we were expecting, but it’s hard to tell with Facebook anyway.

2. Fall Calendar –

We decided to put it to a poll on Facebook whether our October 10th event would be preferred as a Indigenous People’s Day rally or a protest against Columbus Day. Leaning towards a protest, but it was thrown into doubt whether we should do something, or whether we should see if a Native group is working on something that we can potentially help them with instead. We also still need to decide a time for the Liberate Your Computer event.

3. Antifa Books – The Antifa fundraiser we donated to got back to us, saying they will surprise us with a book or other things but will make sure it’s not Our Enemies in Blue as per our request.

4. Moderation methods – We had a bit of trouble trying to search for the right thing, but we did discover some articles for better discussion facilitation. Ty will look through them and bring some he thinks we should look over next meeting.
