The 2023 Upstate Campus Tour!
Published April 19, 2023
On March 22nd, Executive Director, Emily Rubino and Student & Campaigns Coordinator, Roni Zahavi-Brunner headed north from NYC to visit 9 upstate campus chapters and 4 PANYS community chapters as part of our 2023 Upstate Campus Tour.
This annual trip around the state of New York provides a great opportunity for our PANYS state office staff to strengthen our multigenerational organizing network across the state, hear from PANYS chapter leaders about the work they’re doing in their local communities, and build connections with our student organizers who are paving the way for the future of the peace movement. Stops on this year’s 8-day tour included Ithaca, Geneseo, Buffalo, Syracuse, Potsdam, Plattsburgh, Albany, Poughkeepsie, and Westchester.
We were so impressed and inspired to see first-hand the amazing efforts of our PAFNYS Campus Chapters, PANYS Community Chapters, and affiliated allies across the state of New York. A small collection of photos from the trip is included below!
