When it comes to a non-student organization, things get a little more
complicated with money raised through SGA or through individual
contributions (i.e a check written for a bus trip). Also, we over here are
just doing our jobs in lending assistance to students organizing around
activism. I suggest you divide between the three groups other than us at the
Women's Center - and thank you for all of your hard work. I have heard a lot
of buzz on campus about the great job you did and the impact of the March.
There is a group that came to our Women at Noon program this past week to
talk about the March who is interested in doing more - I am not sure if they
are plugged into your group but you can contact Annie in the Career Services
Office (6.3450) if you want to connect.
