This Saturday in the Omni Ballroom come see women-identified folks from
across our community performing a wide range of performances in the 2nd
Women's Variety Show!
Performances include: rock and roll, comedy, percussion ensemble, a
discussion about sexism, and lots more!
The event is Sat. 1/24 at 7PM. Free and open to anyone to attend.
People who came to the last one were really happy. Come hear what women in
our community have to say.
We have one week left in the campaign and only need another $12,855! Thanks
to the generosity of our community, we’ve received $40,000 in major
donations plus $27,145 in grassroots funding through our crowdfunding
campaign page. That means, together, we’ve raised $67,145--approaching our
overall goal of $80,000.
We depend on you to make this happen:
Donate, even a small amount! Every dollar counts:
Social Media! Get on Facebook, twitter, etc. and let people know that
it's the last week and that they should contribute. Tagging specific people
is a really good way to get people's attention.

What does it mean to forge a commons?
Everywhere on the planet, those spaces, places, and resources that we share
and hold in common are being targeted and exploited for personal gain and
corporate profit. It is up to all of us to preserve whatever commons we
still have, and to forge new ones whenever possible.
The Omni Commons has tremendous potential to become a critical community
space. In order to ensure our doors can open, and remain open, we need
your help today.
Love and Solidarity,
The Omni Commons Fundraising Working Group
