It’s been a long time between Schmoozes – more than a year-and-a-half since we all gathered at Spritzenhaus 33 in Greenpoint back in February 2020. But now WE’RE BACK! Join us for all the fun on at ICONYC Brewing in Long Island City on Wednesday, October 6th starting at 6pm. We’ve got covered outdoor tables reserved just for you! Be warned, ICONYC is not just another “Hey, try our awesome IPA!” kind of brewery. These folks have creative skills when it comes to whipping up the brews. They have a delish cucumber saison, their “Sushi Grade” lager is made with jasmine rice, and who doesn’t want to try a Bohemian Pilsner named “Cash ‘n’ Czechs”? Plus, there are food trucks! The #VCNY Schmooze is a great opportunity to converse and connect with alumnae/i in a warm and casual environment. There’s no cost to attend, so just show up and hang out! In accordance with Key to NYC Guidelines, each guest is required to show proof of vaccination upon entering ICONYC. In addition, all guests are encouraged to wear a mask while indoors. . 📸: ICONYC
Looking to enhance your political impact? Turn your eyes away from Washington, DC, and towards state capitols. These foundations of democracy are epicenters of critical policy debates. State legislatures are also battlegrounds on key issues such as gerrymandering congressional districts, regulating voting rights, and shaping environmental policy. Join Wednesday's virtual panel discussion with Vassar alumnae/i with deep experience in state government, political journalism, and policy. You will have the chance to ask questions and learn more about meaningful engagement on the local level. Speakers: • Sharon Dolente ’96, Voting Rights Strategist, ACLU of Michigan • Alfonso Lopez ’92, Virginia House of Delegates, 49th District • Lang Sias ’81, Former Colorado State Legislator • Melissa Walker ’99, Director of Giving Circles, Future Now Fund's States Project Register now at alums.vassar.edu/events!
