The Society of American magicians opposes and condemns Cyber Bullying in any and all forms including but not limited to all forms of hate speech, the use of words which attack physical appearance, gender, religious belief, sexual orientation or nationality and opposes all kinds of needless and hateful cyber bullying resulting from the publishing of private information on magic related web sites.

We applaud this outstanding organization for all it has accomplished and look forward to its contributions keeping our city magical for many years to come”

 

 

Proclamation -2“The week of October 25-31st has been proclaimed ”MAGIC WEEK” by the City of New York, so that it coincides with The Society of American Magicians’ annual event. The mayor recognized that “More than a century ago, a group of New York City magicians gathered in the back room of Martinka and Company’s famous magic shop to form their organization. For more than fifty years the Society has recognized the anniversary of the death of Harry Houdini with a special week of events to highlight the charitable work of its members throughout the year; during which magicians volunteer their talents performing in schools, veterans hospitals., senior facilities and nursing homes and for people who cannot afford to pay for this type of entertainment . “Magic Week” is when The Society of American Magicians takes its bows.” “It is no illusion that New Yorkers are some of the most generous people in the world.
