In fall of 2012, our SPSSI-New York group offered four free social issues activities for its 400+ members and their guests in New York, described at www.spssi.org/ny . The largest of these was our 24th SPSSI-NY Greater New York Conference on Behavioral Research held on Oct 21, 2012 at Fordham University, where many of the 140 participants focused on the 2012 theme of "Promoting Social Justice Around the World." 

This Spring 2013, SPSSI-NY is planning more local activities with area schools, including:  (1) On March 2, a gala international psychology reception at Fordham University. (2) On March 8, a forum on global psychology at St. Francis College.  (3) On April 21, SPSSI panels on social issues at the 41st Hunter College Psychology Convention. (4) On May 4, a SPSSI panel on social issues at Pace University.
