Over the course of 2020, we’re hoping to expand both the number of subscribers and the number of groups submitting events. And we’re hoping you can help us make that happen.
The first edition was emailed to almost 70 subscribers on Monday June 18th, 2018. It has gone out every Monday since, and has grown to over 200 local subscribers.
Even more amazingly, just in 2019, the REO List featured events from 174 different organizations, all based in the Ottawa area.
There’s clearly a lot going on in Ottawa! With your help, the REO List can reach even more people and organizations.
There are two tangible things you or your organization can do to help keep the REO List growing:
1) Share the details about the REO List with your friends, family, and with your organization’s members and contact lists. A general overview of the REO List, including how to subscribe, can be found here.
2) Submit your organization’s events to the REO List for inclusion in an upcoming email. Events submitted by Friday at midnight will be included in the email released the following Monday. You can submit an event by filling out the online form.
How Does the REO List Work Again?
If you’d like to let other people know about the REO List and need a quick descriptive blurb, you’re welcome to use this one:
The Punch Up Collective runs the Radical Events Ottawa (REO) List, a weekly public email announcement list for radical events, meetings, protests, and other activities in Ottawa, Ontario, on unceded Algonquin territory. It’s a way for fellow radicals to share upcoming activities without relying on Facebook and other commercialized platforms.
Subscribers receive one email per week, each Monday, containing details on upcoming events and actions in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. Subscriber emails are not shared with anyone and won’t appear publicly anywhere. The REO List is not a discussion forum; the only email subscribers receive will be the once-weekly events email from Punch Up, and individuals can unsubscribe anytime.
You can subscribe to the REO List here.
If you have any questions or have suggestions on other ways we can get the word out about the REO List, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
