Irvine Monthly Membership Meeting – March for Science Planning @ Natural Sciences II, Room 4206
Mar 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

At this month’s membership meeting we’ll discuss how we can help build the upcoming March for Science in LA on April 22. The March for Science is a national movement that is organizing actions and marches across the country on April 22 in support of science and scientists. Postdocs across the state have been getting involved, and we will discuss what we can do for our local march.

We will also talk about your rights to take political action, including your rights to attend marches and protests (including if you’re on a visa).

Additionally we’ll be electing campus stewards. All members in good standing are eligible to accept nomination.

Lunch will be provided!
