***HELP TO COORDINATE AN OUTREACH TEAM!!:
1) Print fliers/leaflets for distribution
2) Get staplegun, tape, or make wheatpaste
3) With a few friends, pick a neighborhood and pass our leaflets and post up fliers on every
 pole or visible wall. Try to talk to people about the event if you can>
4) Do an action to promote the event (banner drop, street theater, flier storm etc.)
5) Call/text/email/invite friends to the event. Use social media but understand that other mediums might be more effective.
6) Announce an outreach day on Atlanta Indymedia in advance!
