Affinity Group Meetings Update

Dear SDS members, lapsed members, future members, and those interested in the upcoming Affinity Group meetings:


We are sharing a schedule change in the Affinity Group meetings. These meetings are moved from 9/15 and 9/16 to 9/22 and 9/23 to allow those who are observing Rosh Hashanah to attend. The full schedule of meetings will be shared later this week; they are each 90 minutes and the schedule will begin each day at 8amPacific time/5pmCentral European time. CART and ASL will be provided for each meeting.


We would like to note that these spaces were not articulated for disciplinary subgroups (such as bioethics or public health), but rather for multiply-marginalized, disabled folks (SDS members, lapsed members, and future members) to identify priorities and share input that can support strategic planning efforts for a robust future of the organization. We have noted that the creation of member-led disciplinary and other subgroups is of importance to SDS membership and will work towards this in the future.


Thank you for your support,


SDS Board of Directors
