So I checked humans.sudoroom.org
and only members have access to finances?
Is there anywhere else a non-member could check that info? I think it'd be
interesting to have for transparency's sake.
I have a couple of ideas as well to raise money, but as Romy said, I don't
have much free time, besides, as Romy mentioned several times (I love it
every time I read it lol), I don't think women/nb should do this kind of
BUT some simple ones would be:
- Have a permanent campaign for donations (a.k.a post on social media every
once in a while), or have an epic campaign in the end of the year
- I just noticed the donate page at the website has no info at all on how
the money would be used. It'd be nice to add for the sake of transparency
- Have some merch (like t-shirts and tote bags at least), EFF style
- Events. I'm not planning to join any Omni Commons committee but I've
always thought that ballroom space is SO little used. I've been to events
over there, but literally, it could be way more often. If SudoRoom could
host their own events over there it would be nice. Maybe music

My initial thoughts are:
- A Study hall when UC Berkeley is in session, proceeds from this could be
used to create a clean and beautiful living space. The coffeehouses are
overflowing, their libraries are jam packed (I couldn't get into the East
Asian library to check anything out and relax since it's just full of study
I'm not sure how this would be managed, it's a lot of work. I don't think
it's possible to get volunteers to keep the space clean enough though, it's
just too hard.
- There are a number of groups who have checked out the Omni but were
scared off by the consensus process, meetings and potential drama. Is there
a way to get a residence lite with guarantees that nobody has to sit in on
meetings? There are some people who love doing policy, so they should be
able to do it, but it scares a lot of people away.
- SudoRoom - I would pay $30 extra a month if $20 of that would be pooled
to hire a professional cleaner every month and do a deep clean and handle
all the ewaste
We could have member run workshops on stuff like Blender, and then people
who attend throw in $10 as donations.
For me personally, I love SudoRoom and the Omni but I simply don't have
time to do stuff that isn't creative. That includes anything involving
teaching, spending my Friday nights cleaning other people'se waste, etc,
attending omni committees on women and diversity.
