Just as an FYI-- when posting videos or items for discussion I think it makes sense to post them in the "Discussion Forum"-- that way you can have a stream of comments directly on the posted material. I realize now it would have made more sense for me to put the meeting minutes in the discussion forum rather than the comments.

Hi all, 

I'm sorry I had to miss our group call a couple weeks ago. I just looked over the notes and they look great! I wanted to offer what help I can provide. I'll be returning to Jerusalem in August to work with the LWF. I'd be happy to work with Danae and others to help organize these videos and other advocacy efforts. Just wanted to offer that now. Will know more come August when I can have more physical conversations with folks on the ground. 

Sorry again to miss!
