For the first time this year, the Outreach Committee of the Redwood Chapter, ACLU will be holding a meeting! All ACLU members in good standing are welcome to attend.
We're meeting on Tuesday, July 22nd at Noon at our office at 917 Third Street, Suite Q in Old Town Eureka. We're considering making this a regular meeting time (the fourth Tuesday of the month) for this committee.
The Outreach Committee, as the name suggests, is dedicated to enhancing the outreach of the local ACLU in diverse communities, especially the ongoing tabling program to sign up new members and get the word out on local issues and initiatives like police review, election reform, illegal surveillance and more. Outreach also concerns the chapter newsletter (which is mailed to all local ACLU members), coalition-building work with other like minded individuals and groups, and social networking events such as the Arts Alive! events held last year.
The Outreach Committee is also looking to work with a prospective new intern to phone bank our 800+ local ACLU members and get a weekly tabling campaign going at local stores and farmers' markets. We're looking for other good ideas too from members like you, so show up, speak up and get involved! If you're unable to make the meeting, please leave your suggestions on our hotline at 442-4419 or e-mail < firstname.lastname@example.org >.
