Please join us for Happy Hour on Friday! The last few weeks have been particularly concerning to many Postdocs – let’s share some beverages and have a casual chat about our thoughts, concerns, and worries in the current political climate. The first three pitchers are courtesy of the Postdoc union, UAW 5810. All Postdocs are welcome!

Hope to see you there!

San Francisco Membership Meeting – March for Science Planning @ Kalmanovitz Library, CL-213/214
Mar 24 @ 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 San Francisco 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).

Lunch will be provided!
