Dear Boston-area folks interested in Science for the People,

Science for the People (SftP) is an organization of leftist scientists 
that was active in the 1960s-1980s and is getting revitalized by a 
younger generation of scientist-activists.  It has several chapters 
around the country.  We would like to invite you to a meeting of the 
Boston-area chapter, which will happen on *Tuesday, May 15, 7:00-9:00 
p.m*.*, in Room 1-150 (Building 1, Room 150) of MIT in Cambridge*. 
Building 1 is on the northeast side of Mass Ave. near Memorial Drive.

The agenda is below:

1. Short introduction to SftP, national working groups, and the Boston 
chapter
2. Self-introductions, including mention of issues you are most 
concerned about/would most like to work on
3. Presentation by and discussion with early SftP member Jonathan 
Beckwith on biological determinism, how SftP exposed and confronted it 
in the past, and its persistence today (45 min.)
4. Wrap-up, next steps, next meeting

Looking forward to meeting, discussing, and taking action with you,
in solidarity,
Ilias, for Boston SftP
