    v38 v39  
    2424 * Meeting once a month, face-to-face in NY and Mexico, connected by a conference call to:
    2525  * Welcome new volunteers
    26   * Have a two hour meeting to discuss progress and methods for implementing our work
     26  * Have a two hour meeting to discuss progress and methods for implementing our work, that includes at least one topic that relates to a political issue facing another work team, with a summary of the discussion reported in the following coordinators meeting
    2727  * Have a multi-hour (sometimes late into the night) work session
    2828
     
    4646  * Infrastructure Audit team: to pro-actively analyze our services to ensure they are deployed in ways consistent with our data sovereignty goals (dkg, steve, kendra)
    4747  * Comms team: ensure we maintain consistant communications about our services with our broader membership (kendra, jamie, dana, thiago)
    48 
     48 * Collaborate with membership team to recruit more women and people of color through targeted outreach to our membership
     49 * Based on our experiences with the Techie of Color training program, develop and pilot a free software systems administrator training curriculum geared toward addressing racism and sexism (and other forms of oppression) as they operate specifically in the tech world, that can be used in both the US and Mexico (this item has a $3,000 additional budget line attached to it)
     50 * Together with Membership and Outreach teams, develop a "harm reduction" approach to the use of corporate social media, that both firmly addresses the security and other risks of using these services, while also providing an inviting path for joining May First/People Link.
    4951=== Second half of the year ===
    5052
     
    5355 * Launch a Tor node (exit node or relay node?) (gdl)
    5456 * Automatic https-enabled web sites for all members. Currently, all of our members have easy access to http (non-encrypted nor authenticated) web sites. Every member can add an https (encrypted and authenticated) web site, however, it requires many cumbersome steps. By the end of 2014, we would like to streamline this process so that all members automatically have an https site that is signed with an MF/PL certificate and can easily be modified to be signed with a corporate provided certificate. Ticket: #407.
     57 * Begin developing relationships with hardware specialists to explore our vulnerabilities from using potentially compromised hardware (specifically to address the revelations that the Snowden NSA leaks suggest that the US government may be intercepting hardware shipments and changing out shipped components with compromised ones)
     58 * Begin participating, as MF/PL, in more mainstream technical bodies (like standards bodies) that are often dominated by corporations, in order to ensure our political vision is heard
    5559
    5660=== Proposed additional projects (from LC members) ===
     
    7074  * Began: January 2013
    7175  * Job: Responds to all support requests, ensures each requests is answered or assigned to a support team member
    72   * Political Bio:
     76  * Political Bio: Prior to becoming part of the support team, Dana has freelanced with a variety of organizations. Her work has been geared towards making technology more accessible to a variety communities and individuals, through two distinct focuses: organizing data, and software training.  This work affords Dana opportunities to teach about the politics of proprietary versus non-proprietary software. Dana has also taught folks with little or no computer literacy, which includes people who are homeless or formerly homeless, senior citizens and kids as young as three. Most recently, Dana has participated in the Occupy Tech teams.  There she works on developing and supporting free/open tools to meet activists and organizers' needs, as well as providing guidance on use of software to organizers involved in Occupy Wall Street. During Occupy Sandy, Dana managed CiviCRM for relief efforts. Lastly Dana has been intentional about working in collective structures, with horizontal decision-making processes.  She is a founding member of Tadpole Collective, and Glocal, a techie/organizer collective born of Occupy
