Today two important events will be taking place at NYU –
The first is a march led by NYU National Organization for Women in support of budget disclosure to check against pay discrimination at NYU. Marchers will lead a procession from the Kimmel Center at 1pm, holding symbolic ‘glass ceilings’ above their heads to demand an end to NYU’s secrecy surrounding its finances.
The second is an ongoing project to encourage NYU students to remove their personal checking accounts from large banks that support environmentally devastating practices like mountain top removal or coal power, and instead place their money in local banks like the LES People’s Federal Credit Union that offer higher returns and invest in local people. Folks will be in the lobby starting at 11.
