RSVP for NYCoRE’s
Working Group Meeting
Friday, November 21st
Join NYCoRE for our second working group only meeting. This meeting will consist of mainly working group time and report backs so you can learn about the radical work of other groups. You will have the option to choose from the following working groups below. If you want more information please attend the NYCoRE 101 where representatives from each working group will be there to discuss their work.
In order to continue to strategize and research ways to resist high-stakes testing as a collective, we will be selling copies of More Than a Score: The New Uprising Against High-Stakes Testing on a sliding scale from $5 to $15. We hope to read and discuss it with you in the near future. Click here to learn more about the book.
Conference Working Group:
The Conference Working Group is responsible for all of the organizing (from t-shirt design to food service) of NYCoRE’s Annual Conference. The committee is currently full but we are seeking volunteers for a variety of smaller yet very important tasks. Please email emily Clark for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org.

There will also be a NYCoRE 101 Session at 5:30 for folks who are new to NYCoRE and who would like to hear more about the organization and ways to plug into it. If you are interested, please RSVP here.
Vegetarian dinner will be provided. Please bring your own drinks. Also, NYCoRE is making an effort to go more green this year. We’ll have plates and cutlery, but we encourage you to bring your own so we can reduce our use of disposables. Let’s be radical in all aspects of living.
