NYC Pride: Happy Hour on June 22 and March on June 24

The March will take place on June 24, and PRISM is taking the lead in organizing a walking group of scientists under the banner of the national nonprofit organization oSTEM (Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), together with colleagues from NYC-area universities and institutes.

Our check-in time on Sunday, June 24, at the March is 5:00pm on W 17th St between 8th and 9th Ave. Friends, family, and allies are welcome. Our group size is capped at 50. As of Monday, June 18, we are at capacity. If you are interested in marching, please still sign up. We may have cancellations and/or be able to acquire additional wristbands from the Pride organizers. We will be in touch with you soon.

We will have a meet-and-greet and happy hour on Friday, June 22, at 5:00pm at the RU Faculty club co-hosted with Columbia University’s qSTEM with free drinks and pizza. Please register here so we know how much pizza to order. Guests from all institutions are welcome, even if they are not marching on Sunday.
