Notice of Upcoming NACBS Rights Task Force Meeting via Zoom

The NACBS Rights Task Force was created in August 2016 to address LGBT, voting rights, and race and religious freedom issues as they pertain (and if they pertain) to NACBS, and to consider the increasing issues surrounding visas and freedom of movement that confront researchers working internationally. In addition, the Rights Task Force is concerned with the ways that the NACBS can be more inclusive and accessible for graduate students, adjuncts, and people without traditional academic jobs.
  
To help meet these goals, the Rights Task Force will hold a Town Hall meeting over Zoom on Friday, September 25, from 11:00AM to 12:45PM, Eastern Standard Time. 

The purpose of the meeting is to gather information from NACBS members over concerns that they might have related to these issues in advance of the NACBS Conference in November. We are also concerned to hear from the membership about ways to make the online conference to be held in November as diverse, accessible, and inclusive as possible. Come and share your thoughts. In addition, members of the RTF will inform attendees of the results of previous meetings and the status of ongoing projects. 

If you would like to attend, please email rtf@nacbs.org and a Zoom link will be sent to you shortly before the event.

Current co-chairs, NACBS Rights Task Force
