Hey sajolida!

We have indeed started the initial planning for the Mexico City meeting
outreach. In addition to inviting some local Tor people to the full
meeting, we've been working with Gunnar Wolf to identify local groups
that we should invite to the public part of the meeting (the last two days).

The next steps are for us to solidify our plans for the public days and
then do some outreach efforts like a blog post, tweets, and contacting
specific groups. We'll definitely mention this email list in that

I'm working on the plans for the public days now, and when I have
something drafted I'll be sharing it with the meeting planners list:
(you're welcome to join that list!). Our next meeting about meeting
planning will happen on 13 June at 1700 UTC in #tor-meeting.

Oh, and another local outreach thing that some of us are working on is a
feminist meetup at Rancho Electronic for 4 October. We'll probably
restrict attendance to woman-identified and genderqueer people only.
More info on that soon.

I hope this answers your questions!
