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!

Berkeley – Help Build Postdocs’s Public Voice @ Campbell Hall, Room 121
Jun 21 @ 11:30 am

We are launching a program across the state to build our union’s political power, and each campus will guide efforts happening locally. The goal for our initial brainstorming meeting is to bring together ideas about how to take action here in the East Bay and leverage our collective voices to defend science and research, expand the rights of international researchers, and push for improvements on other issues of concern to researchers.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 21st at 11:30am in Campbell Hall, Room 121. RSVP here. This meeting is open to all researchers, so please invite your lab mates, colleagues, and friends to join us!
