We have nearly 6k in donations. We need small groups to go pick up food, and good food that we can cook. Let's get grills here to cook hot food.

We need childcare, and to set up a child care center.

We need someone to get ahold if lupe's team to get tents and sound system here (why are no tents up right now? This is private property, those rules don't apply.)

And we need outreach support to unions. Dc37, seiu, UFT, etc

Yes, I totally second what Doug said: we need more people willing to stay for the night and also to come and support during the day.
