Description of Proposal: For the upcoming OWS Organizers Workshop: Organizing Through a Racial Justice Framework, which will replace Spokescouncil on Dec. 14, 2011, the POC Caucus will need to rent Unity Hall (235 w 23rd Street). It will cost $400 to reserve the space for 4 hours (from 6pm – 10:30pm): $100/hour which covers Unity Hall’s fees for keeping the space open and one security guard (they charge at cost for movement building activities). We looked for free spaces, but could find none that were available and/or suitable — because of the size and dynamic of the workshop there were specific needs for the layout of the space — Unity Hall was the best fit.
