Article Re: Selecting Convening Sites

Hey everyone,

I saw this article from Nature over the weekend that I wanted to share with those who may be interested.

According to the article, the American Physical Society (a group for physical scientists) has adopted a policy to consider a cities police conduct/ history of racist policing policies when making determinations on where to hold their convenings- according to the article they are the first science group to do so and developed a questionnaire that is sent to cities that they are considering hosting events in.

I thought the article brought up some important points that groups that do large convenings such as state-wide or regional conferences may want to consider in the future when making their selections.
