RFK Young Leaders 2013 Benefit – special offer!


The RFK Young Leaders annual party is coming up on May 9th – and they have a limited number of tickets for the MYD community.

The RFK Young Leaders are taking their first foray into local political issue campaigns this year (more below) and are a great organization to get to know for future events and advocacy efforts.  There are some big names appearing, including Questlove from the Roots, keynote by Kerry Kennedy, among others.  Tickets are $100 each, but thanks to skillful negotiation by Finance Director Alex Leopold, tickets are discounted 25% off. That’s right – MYD gets it all for $75!

Members should email Community Service Director Jordan Reisner if interested in attending, so he can hook you up with this sweet deal: service@gomyd.com.

This year the RFK Young Leaders are working to win basic rights for New York farmworkers. Did you know farmworkers don’t have a right to a day off….ever? Did you know that children who work on farms can be paid below minimum wage? By coming to this event, you are standing with the 100,000 people in New York that work on farms, and will help us all pass the Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act.
