Hey folks,
  I have a few questions and want to also talk about the rally.
First question is about the UVM buses- I spoke with Kathleen Brown today
about space on the UVM buses. She said that there is still space. The buses
that PP has oraganized withy NOW and NARAL are full and we are starting
waiting lists. I'd can refer folks to the UVM buses, if you'd like. Kathleen
said it was ok to give folks her number for the UVM buses. I can post info
on our website---want to make sure this is Ok with everyone, so if you'd
like me to put info about UVM buses on our website, please just let me know
what to put ( contact info...any info about buses).  Let me know what you

 About the rally--Kathleen and Charlotte brought up some questions...hope
this helps:
Lauren is a student at UVM who had wanted to work on organizing the rally.
She's not part of the coalition on campus.
 Lauren is printing flyers today and folks will be postering asap. She's
also done some outreach and emails to women's studies classes at the
beginning of the semester.

 So far Lauren is speaking, David Zuckerman is interested, but needs to make
sure he's free on friday, and then Gloria Feldt was going to speak.
  If folks from the coalition are interested in speaking, that's great!
Please just let me know. It'd be great to talk with someone over the phone
about it. Could someone (maybe Charlotte or Kathleen) call me tomorrow to
let me know what you all want to do ?

While it's great that there is a rally happening on campus for the 25th, I
feel like it would be better if students did the organizing themselves.  Did
the coalition organize these speakers? (Dave's great, by the way)  Or was
this just decided off-campus?  Is Lauren a member of the coalition?

I know that the coalition voted to endorse this, but I think we should have
a say in the speakers.  Maybe someone from the steering commitee- Charlotee,
Christina could speak?  This should be democratically done through the
coalition- not around it.

Since it has already been planned and the president of planned parenthood is
coming, we should go ahead.  But for the best event it should democratically
voted on, organized, and publicized well (right now we only have a week and
I haven't seen any posters).  And then we can hold each other accountable
for its sucess since the Reproductive Rights Coalition is being represented,
and is the main vehicle on campus for the march.

set up and hand out flyers the hour or two before on the day of the rally.

A while ago, I emailed about someone tabling for the UVM buses at the rally.
Can this still happen....can you sell tickets, or can people sign up at the

So far the speakers are:
Lauren Barnett (student at UVM organizing rally)
David Zuckerman (Will try and make it to the rally to speak) and
