send other agenda suggestions to thomasm at seiu.org
also Wed at St Stephens: at 6:30 pm, first meeting of the MGJ community outreach group- see below for more details.
At the last MGJ meeting, we discussed forming a working group that would try to figure out ways in which MGJ can work with existing DC-based community groups to:
*strengthen our ties
*help out with local actions
*show that we're not just around during big mobilizations
*maybe take the lead on a local issue or two ourselves.
Calling everyone who is interested to bring their ideas to a brainstorm to generate ideas about:
*what should the scope of our work be?
*what capacity do we have?
*what local groups should we be working with?
*what local issues can we work on to make local-global connection?
*how does this work fit into short and long-term MGJ goals?
Wed, Oct 30
6:30 pm at St Stephens -16th and Newton
(the MGJ general meeting is at 7:30 that night)
