SUMMIT PLANNING MEETING ON JANUARY 14–PLEASE ATTEND & INVITE OTHERS

MEETING REMINDER!!!!!!!!

Saturday, January 14, 2017—9AM to 1PM

Sproul 1102—Use Parking Lot 6

University of California, Riverside

 

The “Mexican@ & Latin@ Response to Trump’s Agenda Summit” planning meeting is scheduled for this Saturday, January 14, from 9 AM to 1 PM.

The planning session’s agenda will cover: (1) Election of Summit Co-Chairs; (2) Consensus on Summit location; (3) Approval of keynote and panel speakers; (4) Finance generation; and (5) Maximizing outreach and Summit attendee confirmation efforts. Taskforces will be presenting their reports.

It is so important that you attend. We must maximize the Summit’s development and organizing tasks in order to have a truly effective Summit agenda designed to counter Trump’s anti Mexican@/Latin@ presidency. With the Inauguration of Trump on January 20, 2017, the next four years are going to be nightmarish for our people. The clock is ticking! We have no time to loose! Every day that we are unorganized is another day that Trump can torment our communities.
