Day 2 - NRRC Site

We posted the Site on Sunday. On Monday we built an outreach team and assigned roles. Rather than haphazard calls, emails and postings, we coordinated messaging. The planning is already paying off.

With intelligence the stakes became much clearer. The city really does want to bulldoze a 130 year old historic club with clear, deeded right to be there. They want to do it this week! It seems incredible but governments have done worse.
