Passion to Action: What Now?
6-7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15
The Passion to Action: What Now? event will feature a panel that will discuss the importance of getting involved with local politics and inform students of ways they can remain politically engaged after the 2016 election. The panelists are:
- Brianna Cea, president of Roosevelt Institute and founder of Bing for Broome
- Erin Riddle, chair of Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter
- Sean Massey, associate professor of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and former Binghamton city councilman
A moderator will facilitate panelist discussion around three areas of post-election political engagement: getting involved with organizations, getting involved with local politics, and individual ways to stay politically engaged. This talk will be open to students, faculty, staff and community members, but the target audience is students. From the talk, attendees should be able to:
- Identify ways they can stay politically engaged
- Recognize that their role in politics does not end with their vote
- Learn about local politics and ways to effect change on campus and in the community
Light refreshments will be provided.
