Part III: Election Discussion and Debrief

Time: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2012, 7pm to 9pm
Place: CUNY Graduate Center, Room 9204 (365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street)*

***************
Join us to talk about the results of the election and what it all means for our queer ASAP communities. We’ll be talking about some of the major issues that remain pressing, including immigration, health reform, and marriage quality. We’ll also talk about Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, and how to best join the volunteer efforts, especially in terms of reaching out to undocumented and transgendered folks in our communities. And finally, we will be collecting donations to go through Project Hospitality to 13 undocumented families in Staten Island who lost everything in Hurricane Sandy (and are not eligible for certain kinds of aid). Below is a list of items that have been identified as much-needed:

-flashlights
-batteries: AA, aaa, D
-candles & matches
-water
-new socks and underwear
-towels
-GENTLY used blankets
-GENTLY used scarves & gloves
-diapers and wipes
-cleaning supplies (garbage bags, bleach, mops)
-non-perishable foods

*You may be asked to present photo identification by CUNY security staff.
