Subject: [MAPC-coord] Proposal for agenda Tuesday, and response to fasting proposal
I would like to request that the issues of (1) International Solidarity, and (2) the workload of some committees be put on the agenda.
 
There has been some discussion of having another committee, International Solidarity.  Someone said that this is the responsibility of the Education/Outreach committee, and the suggestion thereby died.   If I might respectfully disagree, I think this should be discussed.  
 
I am not a member of that committee, but it would seem that the Education/Outreach committee has a mighty full plate.  In addition to producing literature, helping to produce teach-ins and other educational activities, they are the committee charged with outreach to the rest of the community (networking is a full-time job in itself), and recruiting members of specific communities to increase the diversity of MAPC (this is also critical, time-consuming work). And then, some weeks ago, when a couple of folks volunteered to assemble names for a Speakers' Bureau, they were told that this, also, is part of the E/O's work.  With all due respect, that is a great deal of work for a committee of volunteers.  We do not need to burn people out.  Let's divide some of this work up.
 
Secondly, the proposal of a fast is a terrific idea, IF we can get good mainstream** media coverage.  It would be a shame to have folks making such a huge sacrifice if that effort were to go unnoticed by the larger community.
