[Wikimedia-l] Legal and Community Advocacy Office Hours Tuesday 18:00 UTC

James Alexander-4
Hi all,

It's been on the meta office hours page for a while but I'm not sure it's
been announced here yet. Geoff Brigham (WMF General Counsel) and his team
will be having an office hour Tuesday January 22nd (Tomorrow or today
depending on your location) at 18:00 UTC/10:00 PST to answer questions
about the work of the Legal and Community Advocacy Department. The office
hours will take place on the Freenode IRC network in the #Wikimedia-office
room.

For more information including a webchat link and time conversion links go
to the Meta office hour page:

We are happy to spend the next hour talking about issues facing the Legal
and Community Advocacy Department.
