Tasks for week of 11.11-11.17
Kristin, Esteban: email professors outside of GST to engage other students (Ruth Ben Artzi: Esteban; Rick Battistoni: Kristin)
Sorry for any weird messages as my computer has not been working and i've been writing on the wiki from my phone... I emailed the three professors that we had talked about (Ben Artzi, Battistoni and Longo) and we are still in contact with Witness for Peace to make more plans and get more help in terms of fundraising.

Esteban, Kristin, Jenn: Follow up with Witness for Peace

Sig: Go back to departments and investigate how much each pays for their coffee, etc.

Maria: Contact New Harvest Coffee

One thing I was thinking about that maybe Magali might want to take on is what the price difference will be when we get our school to start serving Equal Trade coffee. I'm not sure if we are quite at that place yet, but at the very least we can start looking into how much that coffee costs versus fair trade coffee.

Everyone: Revise/add to work plan (Jenn will post the work plan up on Monday)
