Committees and Working Groups
To get involved check the calendar (on right), fill out a proposal form (under “Get in Touch”), come to a General Assembly, or browse the “pre-approved action items.” If you’d like to get further involved, join a committee! Either go directly to a meeting, or find out at a General Assembly who is currently involved in the committee and ask them how you can help.
Finance – meeting Tuesday at Noon, at Market of Choice
Direct Action – plans to meet Tuesdays, 5:00 p.m. at Coffee Culture on Kings.
Free-School/Education Committee – This group of people are collecting contact information of skilled people who will soon be offering free educational workshops on weekends.
Communications Committee – This group has been involved in interviewing members of the community to research what political priorities people have and looking for our common “issues.” This group is also researching and reporting the “Move to Amend” (see below) project.
Communications – More than a committee, this group is autonomous individuals who are doing what they can to spread the word through various sources than a committee. Please help in advertising events in any way that helps get the word out. Not all “point-people” are comfortable having their contact information “out there.”
