RSVP for NYCoRE’s 

Political Education Meeting

Friday, December 19th

6-8 pm

Please join us for our second political education meeting of the year. We will be discussing the eugenics movement in relationship to “intelligence” and testing.  As part of this political education, we will visit the Haunted Files Exhibit at NYU’s Asian Pacific American Institute.  Since we will be visiting an exhibit, it is super important that we have an accurate count of who will be attending. Please encourage friends and co-workers to RSVP.

We also will have a special celebration for our members to acknowledge our commitment to building NYCoRE and the educational justice movement.

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.
