Our Minority Pres is out of the country for the moment and things have calmed enough to breathe.


Reminder that we have a suggestion post if there’s a topic that you’d like to see discussed but would like to ask the mods to look into. This can be anything from general information, or a how-to-do-a-thing, or something you may want to discuss as a community. Folks are welcome to post directly to the comm as always, but if you’re not comfortable/don’t have spoons, we can help too.

It's been quite quiet in the comm this week, but here are some reminders of ongoing or future actions
