Public Service Announcement

Executive Director Steps Down
Social Justice Center, Albany, NY
518 434-4037

November 1, 2014

The Board of the Social Justice Center of Albany announces that Executive Director Victorio Reyes will step down from his position in February 2015.  Reyes started 10 years ago, taking the Center  from organizing with flyers on phone poles to providing public space, stability, visibility, and fiscal sponsorship to organizations working for social justice in Albany and across the state. He uses his art as a tool for justice and energetically engages multi-generational progressive activists.  He will remain committed to the Center as an active Board member, while pursuing his dream of expanding his career as teacher and writer.

The Social Justice Center board views this as a time for renewal and change.  We invite activists young and old to join us in revisioning the Center’s purpose and developing ways to use the Center’s space to meet the current and future social justice needs of the Capital Region.  We invite letters of interest if you would like to be considered for membership on the governing board.

The Social Justice Center Annual Winter Potluck Dinner is scheduled for December 13th, 6:00 P.M., at the Parish Hall of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 10 North Main Avenue (corner of Madison and Main). This year’s dinner will be a celebration  and appreciation of Victorio Reyes  for his ten years of service to the Social Justice Center and the activist communities of the Capital Region.  In addition to the potluck dinner, there will be a dance party and Social Justice Baskets for raffle, put together by SJC members and friends.  Invite family and friends to join us to honor Victorio and the work we have all accomplished together over the past ten years. Get more details and bid on a Basket on line when the bidding opens in November.
