Here’s a infographic recap of #IPSA2012 Revolution: People, Politics and Change, a conference Co-sponsored by NYU Wagner’s International Public Service Association (IPSA) and Office of International Programs (OIP).
FRIDAY APRIL 13: IPSA’s 2012 conference will explore the recent events in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, as well as other citizen-led political movements past and present, to better understand the commonalities and differences in successful and attempted large-scale change. Through conversations led by various experts, academics and practitioners, we will examine the players, politics and contexts that have been at the center of recent movements and revolutions and their implications for creating long-term and meaningful change in societies. Varying perspectives and topics, such as women and the MENA movements, the role of social media in change, and developing movements in Latin America and Asia will be presented in the day’s events.
The conference will also feature an original photography exhibit, “A Place Called Tahrir,” by Sabelo Narasimhan, MPA Candidate 2012 at NYU Wagner. For more information on the conference and a list of confirmed speakers please look here.

gaywrites: For the first time in state history, New Jersey’s senate passed a marriage equality bill. It passed 24-16 after an hour of debate. But this doesn’t mean the fight is over: Gov. Chris Christie has promised to veto the bill when it gets to his desk. Oh boy. Stay tuned as this develops.
