Triangle "Kedi" showing weekend of March 10?

Anyone else excited to see Kedi, the new documentary about street cats in Istanbul, (currently at 100/85 on RT)? It starts at the Rialto in Raleigh on March 10 and seems perfect for a meetup. Durham or Chapel Hill theaters showing it could work if that's better for folks. Maybe include a stop for appetizers before or drinks after? It's all questions at this point, except for the kitties, which are solid.

[An alternative to the] Stand Up To Racism Demo - London

Edited: Given the problematic elements with Stand up to Racism (please see links in this thread), I'd like to find a better way to take a stand against structures of violence — one that is inclusive, looks out for survivors and creates a safe space for everybody. I've edited this post title, new copy is in brackets. I've moved the original post copy below here, kept for posterity. --- Original post: >Would anybody like to meet up for and/or after the March Against Racism National demonstration on March 18, 2017 in London? >This Stand Up to Racism Demo is for UN Anti-Racism Day. Other UK rallies are happening same day in Glasgow and Cardiff. [more inside]

CANCELLED due to lack of participants

It looks like we will not have enough participants for a useful discussion so I am canceling this meetup. There is a "public" huddle at 11:15 am at 705 Monterey Blvd (a cafe), which I have signed up for - I'm sure anybody would be welcome to attend even if you haven't signed up beforehand. Hope to see you there! The Women's March website has posted the second suggested action (description here), which is to get together with friends and neighbors and decide what issues are most important in your community, and what actions to take about them.

Calgary Christmas MeFiMeet - belated take 2

Hi gang, Hope the holidays were good for all! Our last proposed meetup ending up falling through as it was difficult to pin down a night when everyone was around - thought I would attempt a 2nd kick at the can and see if we can do a winter gathering of sorts. How does Friday, Feb 10 sound? Just for the sake of lobbing a 1st suggestion into the pool. Hope the new year has been kind to everyone so far & looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Possible Central Jersey Meetup?

I'm pretty introverted and strangers make me nervous, so I always think about going to meet ups and then back out. Mostly because on top of all that, it seems I have to travel into New York which can get expensive and traveling there by myself freaks me out. So maybe if I changed one of the two issues I'd have better luck is what I'm thinking. Meet up with less scary travel. [more inside]

10 actions / 100 days from the Women's March - let's start this

I went to the Women's March in SF with some other MeFites and found it a great experience, so I'd like to keep doing ... something. The organizers of the march have started a campaign to continue the momentum, with 10 suggested actions over the next 100 days. How about we get together and try out the first of these actions? We'll write some postcards to Congress, drink some beer, and encourage each other to not just crawl under the blankets for the next 4 years. [more inside]
