Second Annual Institute Social

Help us celebrate another year of critical, community-based education in the public sphere!

The Brooklyn Institute warmly invites you to our Second Annual Institute Social. Join us for an evening of delicious food, open bar (with cocktails!), lively conversation, lightning lectures by BISR faculty, and more. All proceeds help support the Brooklyn Institute’s core operations as well as our many public initiatives, including BISR Network, our series of Midwest learning centers; Community Initiative, which delivers free classes to low-income and underserved adults; and BISR Praxis, which provides educational materials and learning opportunities to activists and public-interest non-profits.
