EPIP NY | 2021 Program Planning Survey

Posted on September 21, 2020

Last Fall, you shared your thoughts with us and helped us plan 2020. Unfortunately, the 2020 we planned for, is not the 2020 we experienced. 

This is a new world, and we want to make sure that the programs and resources available are responsible and relevant. Please take a moment or two and lend your voice again. Help us plan (as much as we can in this changing environment) for 2021!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]

EPIP NY | Reclaiming Our Vote

Posted on August 18, 2020

"Vote like your life depends on it" -Michelle Obama. These wise words, spoken to us by our forever First Lady, Michelle Obama, should not be taken lightly. EPIP NY is inviting you to help get out the vote in the upcoming November election.

We are joining Reclaim Our Vote to reach out to people in key states to encourage them to register to vote. Volunteers will receive a package with everything needed to write and mail postcards to potential voters with information on how to register. To volunteer, please email your mailing address so that you can receive the script, a set of 30 postcards, stamps, and labels.

Dear EPIP-NY Members,
As most of our chapter, steering committee included, are under mandatory work-from-home policies, we wanted to share our plan for EPIP-NY events at this time.
The health and safety of our chapter is paramount to us as the steering committee, especially in New York City and its five boroughs where there is a high-risk COVID-19 exposure. As such, we are postponing all of our events to a later date. (Don't worry, we will be upholding the spirit and content of any postponed events!)
