Minutes from 3/15/2016 were read and accepted with action items

Treasurer’s report: $19.00

Action Items:

John Shannon to meet with editor Gloria Red Bear at creative writing class to discuss guidelines for The Community Voice. She already has around 15 possible entries. There were two beatings in the Rio Grande community last week. One was a woman and one was a veteran.

Carl Spitzmacher to speak with Mark Miller about a convertible for the Gay Pride parade

New agenda items:

We will march in early June in the Gay Pride parade. There are LGBTQ displaced homeless teens who are vulnerable in the Rio Grande community. All to ponder a theme for the float.

There is a public meeting about police training taking place a week from Wednesday.  It would be good if 2-3 homeless people could be present to weigh in on the conversation.
