Happy Hours + Karen Lewis in NYC, Julie and Brian at NYCORE Too

There are 2 chances to meet Karen Lewis this weekend. Tonight at the UFT she will be on a panel with Mulgrew and others. I pre-registered for that. And then tomorrow morning she is the keynote speaker at the NYCORE conference, which is still open despite over 650 people registered as of yesterday. I will be taping and attending all day where there is a fabulous collection of workshops.

MORE will be doing one headlined by Julie, Jack and Brian. I'll tape that too. MORE tee-shirts will be available for sale to help raise money for the MORE election campaign.

Here is the announcement from MORE with a list of upcoming Happy Hours, including 2 this afternoon, from 3-5PM in District 19 in East NY and 5-7 in south Nassau.

  1. Karen Lewis is on a joint panel with Michael Mulgrew today at the UFT and tomorrow she is appearing at a conference where MORE also just happens to be, yet she's not having any direct connection with MORE.

    And, you would have people believe that there's some sort of direct MORE-Karen Lewis/CORE relation? It doesn't quite equate with your own facts.
