Thank you Roberto! I'll make sure something from NOMA gets in there :) and
I'll send a message over to the group to see if anyone has anything else
they'd like to share.

Thanks Dane. Yea please forward this to the correct
emails. I couldn’t
find the sudomesh email so I’m glad you got it.
In terms of collectives I think we’ve covered them. But if there is anyone
in particular that may be interested we can forward them.
The next step is to format and structure the newsletter. Are there things
we want to include beyond the collective updates, like articles, or art,
poems, etc? For sure we need to write an opening letter or article writing
about the most important updates. I think we can include the town fridge
here. I can start a draft and we can work on it together then.
We can discuss the further tomorrow at our next meeting.

Thank you for your work on this, Roberto !
I can forward this to East Bay Food Not Bombs current email list (the
previous angrylists EBFNB listserv is no longer active) :
Also, Sudo Mesh:
Any other groups or collectives needing to be added ?
Also, we can write up something about the OC Town Fridge in the
introduction later as its own autonomous collective project.

Hello Omni folks,
How are ya’ll doing? We hope everyone is doing ok.
It’s been a while since we’ve put out an Omni newsletter, almost a year
has gone by since our last one! A lot has happened between then and now, so
it would be nice to catch up. We’re thinking of putting out the next
newsletter by the end of March, so we want to invite Omni collectives and
Omni folks to share updates, thoughts, art, feelings, ideas with us, so we
can include them in the Omni Commoner.
There is a lot to talk about. We are still in the grips of a deadly
pandemic which has undeniably exacerbated the ills of capitalism and its
deadly effects on our community. But Omni folks and Omni Collectives have
organized and actively continued to support the community during this
crisis. We are stewarding a town fridge, the North Oakland Mutual Aid
Project is going strong, Acta Non Verba has adopted Phat Beets’ CSA, and
the rest of Omni collectives continue to do empowering work out in the
community. The working groups are meeting, some regularly and other
sometime, the finance/fundraising working group though has been at the
forefront doing the important work of keeping the Omni alive, critical
work, which we are all grateful for! There is much more going on for sure,
this is not even mentioning the different individual projects Omni folks
are working on!
It has been a rough year, but with the spirit of collectivity, the Omni
continues to be a hub for community collective action during this pandemic.
It is this we would like to share in this newsletter =].
So if you want to share anything with the Omni community please do! Art,
thoughts, visions, desires, anything!
We are asking from each collective to submit 1-4 paragraphs providing an
update of the work ya’ll have been doing. Below are some suggestions of
questions or topics you can touch on:
Updates from your collective. New visions and goals.
How your collective has been responding to the covid-19 pandemic.
What kind of world do ya’ll imagine post covid-19?
Anything you want to share….poetry, paintings, photographs, recipes,
Please send your content to the communications working group email at
comms(a)lists.omnicommons.org, by March 21st.
Like all the other working groups at the Omni, the communications working
group needs more participation. If you are interested in joining please

With love and solidarity,
