FFR/Princeton BTGALA's Shawn Cowls is bringing us back to People for a very special fall dinner! Our dinners have had a great turn out of folks of all ages. People serves wonderful pan-asian food. We will have an hour of passed appetizers and mingling over cocktails (cash bar), a reading / performance upstairs and then we'll have a buffet dinner with delicious food for all. We have the whole restaurant for this special event! 

For many of us, New York may feel like it's being run by Tammany Hall. We get to the polling place and we are greeted with candidates we haven't heard of running for positions we may barely understand.  We read about battles over issues we feel we have little input on and wonder why no one seems to talk about the issues that impact us personally in the moment. How in a city that is so political could this be? Come talk with three of our own in-house experts about how New York politics really works, and how you can jump in on the issues that matter to you...from fights as big as marriage equality and gender non-discrimination or the way co-op apartment owners are taxed completely differently than condo owners to those as local as getting a dog run for your neighborhood park. From community boards to political clubs to PACs and non-profits and peculiar parties that only seem to exist on election day, New York's strings get pulled in very unique ways. Our expert panel will discuss the way things happen here in NYC and take your questions!

The special rate of $20 is available for current Princeton University students ID - this rate is only available at the door, so if you qualify, please RSVP at http://tigernet.princeton.edu/~ffr-gala/AlternateEmail.html 

We particularly welcome gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans men and women alums from the Ivy League and Seven Sisters schools and our friends from William & Mary, NYU, Stanford, Duke, UVA, Georgetown, Northwestern, Amherst, USC & Emory. Our friends and loved ones from other schools are also welcome, as are current students. 

Thanks to our cohosts
