JASMYN Prism Network Launched

Are you a young professional or JASMYN alum aged 25 – 40 who would like to connect, network, and increase your engagement with JASMYN? A terrific group of activists, volunteers, and supporters is formalizing a Young Professionals and Alumni chapter just for JASMYN! The chapter bylaws were drafted by a task force over several months in 2016, and were approved by the JASMYN governing board earlier this year. An annual membership fee of $30 includes an entry to #StridesForPride. Want to learn more?
