The MORE ride continues.
Come to the chapter organizing training by MORE and Labor Notes on Weds. Sept. 19 - see below for details.
MORE continues its efforts with a CL and Del support listserve where people post questions and get answers they won't get elsewhere. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Many MORE members were at the UFT Chapter Leader meeting on Sept. 12 with a possible record being set by 9 week old Jack Cavanagh.
– the first Delegate Assembly will be in October. (For those not aware, the DA is made up of chapter leaders and delegates. Each school has at least one of each and bigger schools get one additional delegate for every 60 members.)
After the meeting, MORE held a Planning Committee meeting at a local bar, and Jack wasn't even asked for ID. The Planning Committee is MORE's temporary steering committee to run the group while we figure out more lasting structures – sort of trying to build the house while living in it.
Over 20 people showed up, which created a few logistical issues – like how do I get my beer and food while trying to meet? Unlike some groups (E4E Screens People Out at Screening of WBD,) MORE is totally open and some people who had their first contact with MORE were welcome to join in. No pledges to sign before entry. MORE does have a mission statement with basic principles of agreement decided on democratically and to be a voting member (when MORE does vote) people should be in basic agreement.
