We had our lovely "elections" -- meaning nomination process. :)

Here are our new officers:
President, Julie Kilger
Vice President, Sarah Betz
Secretary, Shahida Arabi
Treasurer, Nikita Shah

Congrats everyone!

We also discussed the things we thought were positive this year, were negative this year, and the events we liked/disliked. If you have any thoughts, feel free to e-mail us.

Next week we're going to watch a movie and we're thinking about Kill Bill (kick ass woman who doesn't take shit from anyone, who could ask for more hahaha). If anyone has any other suggestions, feel free to e-mail me by Saturday so I can order it from Netflix.

We're having our end of the year NOW get-together at BBQ on May 8th. We'll let you know what time next week.

We're also thinking about doing a feminist book club this coming summer. If anyone is interested, send me an e-mail. We're going to try to meet over the summer or at least do some online discussions (though meeting with one another is preferable). We're going to try to stay active and involved this summer, whether through community service or just meeting and doing the book club.

Hope to see you next week at our last meeting of the schoolyear! :'(

Take Back the Night

Hey everyone.

Sadly, Take Back the Night is cancelled. :( Due to conflicts with park permits we are unable to have Take Back the Night this year at NYU. Thanks to everyone who started sending out e-mails or advertising to other clubs. This has been a wonderful learning experience for us and we now know what we need to get done for next year.

Hope to see everyone at this week's meeting (and come with your picks/nominations for any positions you may want or would like to see others have). Kimmel Room 805 at 7pm!!!

April 15, 2009 Meeting

Hey there everyone. -- Long post so read through it!

We're still unsure about the permits for Take Back the Night so STOP sending out e-mails to people inviting them to the event...

A few people are heading up to Columbia's Take Back the Night TONIGHT to see what theirs looks like, check out what we could possibly do for ours, and to support Columbia in their efforts! You can meet Julie outside of Kimmel at 8pm TONIGHT to make the trek uptown.

We only have TWO meetings left! :(
We'll be discussing some important things. Next week we'll be going over what was effective this year and what was not, what we want to do next year, etc. So please come and tell us how you think things are/were/will be! This is a club that relies on the input of its members! We will also be having a movie night during our last meeting. We're going to try to have a get together outside of the meetings and we'll keep people posted on that.

We're also going to be having elections! Either e-mail Julie or bring something to her at next week's meeting if you would like to nominate yourself or someone else for a position. Our positions are President, Vice President, Secretary/Webmadam, and Treasurer. We have a few different committees as well if people want to keep those alive and well. Don't feel obligated to nominate yourself and don't be afraid not to!

RELAY FOR LIFE: This saturday at COLES!!!! We're in the process of getting things set up for that. But show up by 6pm so that we can participate in the team lap at 6:30. If you're available, come earlier around 5pm to help Julie set up the table, etc. If nothing else, be there for the Luminaria ceremony at 9pm. That's always a very powerful and motivating event. Bring CASH because there are no ATMs at Coles. You are allowed to leave and come back until midnight. After that you are not allowed into Coles until 6am.

The Student Health Center is doing the "Clothesline Project" during which they're going to be making and hanging up t-shirts which express peoples' experiences and feelings about sexual violence. There's a t-shirt "party", if you will, tonight at Weinstein and there's one tomorrow (AKA FRIDAY) at the Student Health Center from 12:30-1:30, which will be hosted by our very own Nicole! Go check it out if you're available.

Next week is Earth Day (Wednesday) where there's going to be a huge vegan sandwhich--not sure where but keep an eye out. Also keep an eye out for the Bare Energy Frolick. ;)

The Activists Network is holding a Socially Responsible Investment Committee meeting next week after the normal NOW-NYU meeting time. It's at 8:30pm and I believe it's in Kimmel. E-mail Julie to find out the location.

I believe that's all for now! Hope to see you at some of these awesome events and to get your input on how things have been going this year!

Today's Meeting


Don't forget to bring a t-shirt and $11 for Sue for our NOW-NYU t-shirts!!! If you don't have a shirt (preferably white) that you want to print on, the guy we're taking them to sells them for about $15 each. We'll also be discussing Take Back the Night stuff.

Hope to see you tonight at 7pm in Kimmel 805!

Don't worry!

Hey ladies.

I haven't forgotten anyone or anything! We're trying to get a few details mapped out before I post anything final. I'll keep everyone updated as soon as I know anything!
