Would you like to meet Berkeley’s assembly candidates? Introducing Buffy Wicks and Jovanka Beckles, California's 15th State Assembly candidates! Come to our forum on October 12th at 4-5pm in Soda Hall, HP Auditorium, to listen to candidate perspectives on issues relevant to the student body and the Berkeley community. The forum will start off as a moderated Q&A and then will open up to the audience for questions. We encourage all students in STEM fields to come gain a strong understanding of platforms and issues such as women’s rights, funding for STEM education and research, public education, and the climate for women and other minorities in the workplace.

This event, hosted by the Society of Women Engineers, is part of the launch of the new advocacy program, which encourages young women in STEM to get involved in politically and carve our place in the political landscape.
