Announcement :: DNC
dnc consulta needs volunteers!
28 Jan 2004
if you'd like to help out with food, childcare or general stuff at the consulta in boston, get in touch soon!
With the DNC resistance consulta right around the corner, the Bl(A)ck Tea Society is going to need some help hosting out of town guests and running the consulta. The consulta runs from Friday, February 13 to Monday, February 16. The time we're going to need folks the most for the consulta is Saturday and Sunday, but we also need folks to house out-of-town guests, as we are expecting at least 60-some people coming to town for the weekend.

If you can offer housing, please email nodnc04 (at) with your contact info and number of people you can host.

Below is a list of other consulta duties we're going to need help with. More specific details will follow regarding times and numbers needed for the consulta, but if you know you're interested in any of these roles and want to help out, feel free to drop a line to nodnc04 (at) and let us know.

We're going to need help with prep and cleanup for breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, light refreshments Friday night and breakfast Monday morning.

We'll need some help all four days getting everything in order.

We're going to need a couple folks to sit at the check-in desk Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We plan to offer childcare during the consulta. We'll need some volunteers to help out with the kids.

Can you say more about the childcare you're offering? I applaud you for doing it, but I wouldn't leave my kid with someone based on, "We plan to offer childcare...we'll need some volunteers to help out with the kids."

Is this a plan or a reality? What are you asking of those who volunteer? Any experience with kids? Do you have anyone coordinating this who has childcare experience? Just posting it on the web a few weeks beforehand honestly isn't reassuring.

Though we're told that caring for children isn't really work, it's important to recognize it for the real work that it is. And that means making sure that people know what they're doing!
