* In the morning, bagels will be available, and we will supply coffee and
hot drinks throughout the day, all for a donation.
At lunch and dinner, there will be food trucks in the parking lot, south
of the gym.  We recommend you bring cash, to support these local food
vendors.

Tomorrow, our goal in this conference is to unite around a common strategy
to build 15 Now and win a real 15 in Seattle and beyond. Our plan to
launch a mass signature gathering campaign for a charter amendment is
crucial to keep the pressure up, against compromises and carve-outs for
big business.

Council, which is the main document to be discussed, debated and voted on
at the conference.

The proposed resolution is a collective effort based on the on-going
discussion, debate and experience of building the movement and reflects
the key aspects of how we build 15 Now and a strategy to win.
