Be Social Change Events Guide 4.22-4.28

Happy Earth Day! If you haven’t seen it yet Google created a beautiful and interactive doodle for the day complete with a sightseeing checklist to ensure you don’t miss any part of it. We have the perfect weather today in NYC and we hope everyone has a chance to step out to celebrate in the sun!

The photos are up on Facebook from the Be Social Change Makers Institute launch party that we hosted at the Centre for Social Innovation a couple weeks ago. You can check them out here: http://bit.ly/MakersPhotos. Also be sure to view our campaign page, donate, and share: http://bit.ly/makers-institute 

Thank you for all your support so far! 

Let’s build the Be Social Change Makers Institute!

Here’s our snapshot for the week (keep scrolling down for the full list of events as well as community announcements and a ‘call for submissions’ section):

Have a great week and we hope to see you around town!
