Hey fellow activists & organizers!
Have you been curious about Socializing for Justice's philosophy or how we
managed to grow to almost 1600 members without outside funding or staff?
Then you should definitely check out tomorrow night's BASEN meeting where
I'll be on hand to answer these questions and much more. Also, have you
checked out the Progressive Organizing Toolbox:?
www.neworganizing.com/toolbox - an amazing free resource for training
organizers and building campaigns. It was released on Sunday at
RootsCamp<http://www.rootscamp.org>(Were you there? It rocked!)
*The Boston Area Solidarity Economy Network (BASEN)*
Wednesday, December @ 7PM at Beaufort Co-op in JP
Robbie Samuels of Socializing for Justice (SoJust) will lead a discussion of
how having fun can be as important to any revolution as the right strategy
and tactics. Learn how they grew to almost 1600 members and hosted 85+
events. Find out what's on the horizon as the organization moves towards
it's 5th year anniversary.
