new volunteers 

katie and erik – thursday has so many people that they’re getting bored. we also have a lot of volunteers who aren’t connected, may be able to start new servings. have a general purpose volunteer meeting and workshop to see what people need to startup servings and what they can do.

proposal: picnic at dolores park as it is easy to find, has reliable weather. May 21st 3pm. APPROVED

keith mchenry 

kevin on the phone: travelled to taos, nm talked to locals about keith, some people had positive things to say, some interpersonal issues.

locally: some local and ex FNB people have issues with keith, some mad, frustrated by his criticisms of local fnb chapters. anarchist book fair, issues about reimbursement / funds from making cupcakes. did anyone ask for reimbursement?   irish says keith is open to examination of finances or accountability w/ sffnb people.

 proposal: to hold keith up to the apology letter that he’s written irish, to answer questions and engage him on these issues. we will revisit this topic in the near future. APPROVED

sleep in

May 14th, sleep out for homeless lgbtq youth. cooking dinner and breakfast . 6pm on Saturday, Civic Center. 7am on Sunday at Harvey Milk Plaza. Help needed for serving. Details here

groups of people volunteering

recently, we got emails from middle schoolers and an evangelical church. different people have different feelings on this. some people want to proceed, others have reservations.

proposal: craft form-letter  statement to send to groups that describes fnb as welcoming, diverse, anti-authoritarian community, folks are aware of what FNB is so people can knowingly participate if they wish,  no litmus test. taking a responsibility for education about FNB and our principles,  criticism when  groups come to join us.  a working group is exchanging ideas, and will bring back something to the next meeting. if interested email ellen or aiden. APPROVED

Next meeting: 

Saturday June 11, 2011, 7pm at Ellen’s



Note: Servings may cancel in the event of rain

WED: 16th & Mission – 6:30 PM.
