Agenda & Minutes[edit]

  • We are attending discussion for peer support with Trust and Safety and needs for IP block exemptions (for example) with global stewards may be needed. There appears to be issues of systemic bias against people who are considered advocates for various civil rights issues that may need to be explored and supported with new ways of peer support.
  • We discussed the need for a User Group website and server space for applications, such as private discussion and confidential email.
  • Planning for the 2022 LGBT+ UG Event (Conference Proposal) - this is still being worked on.
  • Maryana Iskander is meeting with some Affiliates to begin discussions about issues that we exist and our presence will be representative and will hopefully get more funding and resources and we represent the community.
  • UCoC feedback is still coming...
