Organizer sign up:
This group revolved around recruiting (my word) organizers that normally stay at their own home to stay on site to help support the overnight scene at OE. Roman/Sween will be there everynight this week (?) and Plaedo on Thursdays.
Jamil will take current list of sign-ups and send it out to email and on forum and set up a calendar.
20 Minute quick and dirty de-escalation training after this OM. Sunday after the Safety meeting there will be a longer de-escalation training. Please come, everyone.
Tonight groups of 2-3 people will hang out around the central highway of camp to connect with campers. If people feel comfortable they will approach tents to talk with campers. Permission will be asked: “may I talk with you?” “May I approach your tent?”
These groups will say something like: “we really need your help. The police dept. have called Legal. Possibility that the camp will be shut down if there is violence happening tonight. Would you talk to everyone you know and ask them to help spread the word so we can keep our camp.”
Community Building Whiteaker:
Outreach to Whiteaker, letting people know that they are invited to community dinner and volunteers are needed.
Baseline set of Rights and Responsibilities:
Volunteers will go to all tents and participants and ask people to articulate 2-3 things that feel most need to be included in the sets of rights and responsibilities. Binder will be at info to submit ideas.
Friendly reminder signs will be put up around camp.
