I'm forwarding this to Outreach: there is a subway team currently
operating and people are being recruited to spread the word and organize
across the city. In addition we're looking at organizing tools now.
Please direct this energy in the outreach committee's direction so we
can stay coordinate and not duplicate efforts.
