Oh hai!

I think tabling is my new favorite BARCC activity. Doing survivor-speaker speeches is very powerful, but ties my stomach in knots for hours beforehand. Workshops are very nifty. But tabling is so easy by comparison. Basically it's a few hours of me sitting there and smiling at people and saying "Oh hai! How ya doin'?" and "Here, take our pamphlets so I don't have to carry them home!" and then engaging them in discussion. It is just me being chatty about helping people and about working for social change. Fun!

Two organizations on campus are interested in having us come in and do workshops or talks. I got info for a few potential volunteers. Three people disclosed to me; no one needed tissues.

And we actually ran out of a few things. The wallet cards, and, wonderfully, the "rape is an issue for men, too" handout. A lot of guys came by and were willing to listen to our spiel; two told us about a presentation about rape that they'd seen last year that had really made an impression on/difference for them. So that was nifty. :)

So yes. Now I nap.
