Events: Guidelines for Political Meetups
Sometimes we get requests for events related to political candidates along the lines of “Rochester for Jane Doe 3054”. These are a bit tricky since the Flying Squirrel Community Space (FSCS) is a federally recognized 501(c)3 public charity not to mention that many of us don't support electoral politics in general. However, we do want to have these events, with the following guidelines:
- Both our calendar and their promotional materials that mention the FSCS should say: “The Flying Squirrel Community Space does not endorse any political candidates or parties.”
- We ask them not to leave any campaign literature at the space.
- We ask for our typical cost for a group meeting: $25 or pass the hat at the very least.
