ISA Monthly Meeting Minutes
September 28, 2021
Outside FCC--chilly when the sun dropped, but lovely all the same
ACTION ITEM: Inquire with congregations about ride
Had a conversation about the possibility of Drucila being approached by law enforcement while out with an ISA member.
Know Your Rights training powerpoint and video are good to review--here is a link to them.
Kristen noted that she is in early stages of conversation with a woman from the Dominican Republic who might be interested in having Drucila and Jessie stay with her.
Work possibilities include school aid and help with Ob-Gyn Associates.
But these remain possibilities, and the need to make them concrete could come as soon as the beginning of 2022.
ACTION ITEM: Contact Michael if you are interested in meeting once a month (and having email exchanges) about helping Drucila with the transition.

Note for Congregation/Organization Bulletins/Newslestters/Listservs re: CMC waiving most of the costs for Drucila’s wrist surgery:
Please join our sanctuary team working the the Ithaca Sanctuary Alliance in expressing gratitude to Cayuga Medical Center for waiving most of the expenses for Drucila’s (the FCC sanctuary guest) wrist surgery last summer through their financial assistance program. CMC was acting in accordance with New York state law. Still, they were prompt and very courteous about the query.
