So, good news and bad news.
Good news: Shimer College is hosting SOUL, Southsiders Organized for Unity and Liberation, who will be teaching a two hour “here’s some awesome stuff to know about being an organizer” class. Their organization program is based on “Rules for Radicals” by Saul Alinsky, which is pretty cool. Shimer is located on 35th and Federal (well, right around there). And,
The bad news: My school organization, unaware of the new CACHE meeting time/date, scheduled this event on Wednesday, at 6:30 – which is in direct conflict with our meeting…
I’ll try to see about getting it rescheduled but it looks like that time might have to stick, because of SOUL’s schedule.
So, the three things to know are (1) Organizer training at Shimer College, 35th and Federal, at 6:30 on Wednesday the 30th (2) You can contact me if you need to know something specific, like where exactly Shimer is, since it isn’t right on 35th and Federal, and (3) The training is two hours long, if you can’t make it or if you want to go to the CACHE meeting (which you should) you can always send someone else from your student group.
Thanks and sorry about the scheduling conflict,
