Davis (Main Campus) – March for Science Planning @ Physics Building, Room 186
Mar 22 @ 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 Sacramento 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!

Santa Cruz Membership Meeting – Taxes for Postdocs @ Sinsheimer Labs, Room 301
Mar 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Come join us on Thursday March 23 for a Postdoc meeting with pizza lunch. Given that it’s “tax season”, we’ll discuss the basics of filing Federal and State taxes, including issues affecting fellows and international scholars. Your peers are also an excellent resource for tax questions and this will be a good opportunity to ask questions and share information.

We will also be discussing our efforts on the topic of Visa and Immigration, and what kinds of support we can ask UC to provide for Postdocs affected by the visa ban. Come and share your ideas!

Lunch will be provided!
