Greetings Sudo Room!
This is your monthly donation invoice. Thank you for stewarding the
Love and solidarity,
Omni Commons Finance Working Group
I have my own creative project 😎
Still getting used to being in a place with so much cat dependency. Cars make the west coast really suck 😢 but wondering how we can make it better.
Nyc rules! I’d like to build more links with SudoRoom and nyc as well as Berlin .
When I was a member of Rps collective we’d often come up with creative fundraisers based on creative projects people did in the space. There were many spontaneous examples among them stuff that became a dj party out of a comics workshop
Not sure about Omni commons long term survival will be based on new members getitng put into consensus meetings, cleaning 🧹 projects or pushing women to teach and care for kids 🤣. But that’s just me
I like the womens coding night. I can’t make it but it’d be cool to see a showcase of projects!

dear sudoroom members, as your delegate i will be asked to represent our
collective will on these proposals. I believe they are uncontroversial and we
should approve the proposal.

Subject: [omni-consensus] PROPOSAL: remove inactive member collectives (FYE and
Neither FYE or Liberated Lens has shown up to a delegates meeting or
occupied space in the building for a long time. Neither exists as an
active group in any meaningful way. I think we should formally declare
together that these groups are dissolved, are no longer member
collectives, no longer fiscally sponsored projects, and no longer have
delegates or board members at Omni Commons.
Current delegates, please discuss among your groups. If there are no
objections, we can use our next meeting to formalize this - Thursday
September 1, 2022.

OK I have asked this in the past, but Omnicommons and Sudoroom are officially non profits right? I'd like to donate and get my company to do a corporate matching but I need fussy stuff like receipts, verification that it's a non profit. =/ if it's too much bother I'll just donate in small bursts until I find out more.
