Wednesday Meeting Information

June 16, 2009

Okay, for those of you who are planning on attending the continuation hearing for the Equal Rights Ordinance tomorrow, here are some helpful facts/suggestions:

The doors will open to the Assembly hall at 3:30pm, according to the security guards.  Plan on showing up earlier than that if you want a seat inside.

The meeting is planned to run from 4:00pm – 11:00pm.

The Assembly is still allowing sign-ups to testify as far as we know, though the numbers have grown to over 500 at last count.

We would suggest if you wish to speak, typing up your testimony and making ten copies to give to the Assembly.  When called, state your position on the ordinance and hand them your testimony.  It will save you and the hearing valuable time.

Wear blue if you can to show support, even if you’re not testifying.

Bring snacks and water, try not to bring anything overly fragrant or messy, though.

Be respectful and succinct when speaking to the Assembly.

Keep an eye out for each other and be supportive.

If you have any suggestions to offer, please feel free to add them in the comments.
