Sudo Room also formally endorsed this tonight.
Thus far we have:
* Art Bison Design Coop
* Kazoo Studios
* Sudo Room
* possibly BAPS & Defend Aunti Frances
cc'ing to the Liberated Lens and Food Not Bombs mailing lists and to Phat
Beets, in the event those most invested in these issues aren't on discuss
nor consensus omni lists.
Help open a professional kitchen at the Omni Commons in Oakland!
