I need finance to confirm that this money ($200) can be allocated.

Do I need to present this to outreach committee or ga?

Yes! It could be wonderful. Is someone following up on this? Outreach? I haven’t heard anything about it at Liberty Plaza.

Hey all,

Many of you remember that my neighbors and life-time bed-stuy activists Rodney 'Radio Rahim' Deaz and Jitu Weusi spoke last week at a General Assembly. They are now more excited than ever about what we're growing in Liberty Plaza, and want to bring out their congregtion of 30-40 this Sunday, Oct 2, 10am.

Cost is prohibitive though, so they are requesting a bus for the trip. This includes both congregants and a group of ministers.

How do people feel about allocating $150-200 to bus these folks out to lead a multi-denominational service this sunday?

If the group doesn't feel that this is a legitimate use of donated funds, I will front the money as I believe this is  critical element of outreach.
