Minutes for Monthly Meeting at the San Francisco Public Library on Saturday, March 14, 2015

 

Attendees: Phil Berg, Aubrey Freedman (Chair), Starchild, and Jason Williams (guest).

 

Activist Reports: Starchild gave a presentation at Free Exchange about singularity, attended the YAL debate at SF State, and spoke at a rally for Tibet.  His plans for the upcoming month are to be interviewed by Joel Engardio (Examiner columnist), attend a BACLC civil rights gathering in Oakland on March 18, debate at SF Debate at The Commonwealth Club on March 17 arguing for the skeptical view of climate change, and speak on a radio show (with Brian who he met at the YAL debate).  Aubrey’s only activism lately was promoting the Tax Day symposium in April.

Monday, March 16-7:00-9:00 PM-Golden Gate Liberty Revolution-Monthly Meeting-Moksha Life Center-405 Sansome Street.

Tuesday, March 17-5:30-8:00 PM-Showing of the documentary Cowspiracy about the environmental effects of animal agriculture in the Koret Room in the SF Library Main Branch.

Wednesday, March 18-6:30 PM-BACLC (Bay Area Civil Liberties Coalition) meeting at Impact Hub in Oakland.

Saturday, April 4,-7:00-11:00 PM-Free Exchange-Jim Elwood’s in Parkmerced.

Saturday, April 25-JSA Convention-Santa Clara Marriott-2700 Mission College Blvd-Aubrey noted that he will be on vacation, but Les likes to attend this event so maybe he can drive (Starchild and Phil expressed an interest in attending).

 

Reminder:  Aubrey noted that any activist can organize an event.  The person just needs to post it on the Activist List or bring it up at a meeting so the LPSF is on board with the event.

 

Membership/Newsletter Report:  Aubrey reported membership is down by one member to 38 (22 lifetime members and 16 current paid up annual members).  For the monthly email newsletter, he reported having a lot of trouble with Yahoo in February locking him out of his account several times because of “suspicious activity” (sending spam).  He will send smaller batches of emails in the future.

 

Treasurer’s Report: Aubrey reported that the beginning balance was $3,517.13.  No checks were written in the past month.  There was one dues payment of $25.00 and a transfer of monthly donations from PayPal of $55.00.  The new balance is $3,597.13.  Aubrey noted that $350 is earmarked for Pride, but another $43.53 has not been transferred from PayPal yet, so the adjusted amount we have to work with is $3,290.66.    

 

Political Filing Report:  Aubrey noted that the rules for reporting are:  from $0.01-$24.99-no information is needed from the donor; from $25.00-$99.99-need name and street address of donor; and from $100.00 or more-need name, street address, occupation, and employer of donor.  Figures are cumulative throughout the year, so each donor’s contributions must be tracked separately.  Aubrey contacted all the recurring monthly donors and was happy to report that all donors understood the reason for filing the reports and collecting the intrusive information, and no donors decided to withdraw their support.

 

Pride 2015: Aubrey reported that all fees have been paid and all paperwork has been submitted to SF Pride, so everything is all set for the last week-end in June.

 

Tax Day 2015: We discussed the final details for the housing symposium at the Main Library on April 5.  There will be 60 chairs and 3 tables—2 for the panelists and Starchild, and one near the entrance for water and programs/brochures.  The question of amplified sound came up—Aubrey said he will contact Michael Hinson from the library to see if they have a mike available.  The question of taping the event for the record also came up, and it was suggested that we contact Steve Kemp from the anti-Plan Bay Area coalition to see if he would agree to tape it professionally for us (we will cover any expenses he incurs).  Starchild mentioned that he’s still working on trying to get noted housing activist Jennifer Friedenbach to appear as another one of our panelists.
