*Skillshare: Leveraging Social Media for Social Justice**** - Monday, April
4 - 6-8:30PM*
The NonProfit Center by South Station
*Do you want to master integrating your media message across multiple
channels (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, email)?* We're very excited that
Amanda Johnston, integrated media guru at GLAD, has agreed to facilitate
this training. Go beyond social media 101 and get some tips and tricks on
using social media tools to further your organization’s mission.  We’ll talk
about how using social media for your organization differs from personal use
(and in what ways it’s the same); negotiating resistance and barriers to
social media use in your organization; and thoughts on creating a
constructive social media policy.*

*New Leaders Council: Invest in a Progressive Future - Wednesday, April 13 -

I wanted to let you know about an excellent leadership training program for
young progressives, New Leaders Council Institute. As a 2011 Fellow, I receive
top-notch training in the Institute (at no cost!) and I'm connected with
NLC's amazing alumni network. The 2011 Fellows are deeply grateful for this
opportunity, and with your help, we can pay it forward. *Please join us at
our fundraiser featuring comedian and actor Jimmy Tingle! Tickets are $20
($25 at the door). Show your support of the NLC Institute with a sponsorship
of $50 or more!

*Help spread the word via SoJust Facebook

*"Where can I hold my event? Know any good venues?*" *Share Your Venue Leads
*(We've received 8 leads so far - we'll make this list public when we have
at least 25)*
I often get asked for suggestions for where to hold different events. What
would be really helpful is if we had an organized resource list of venues in
the Boston area that would host progressive/activist meetings or events.
With your help SoJust is going to build this list. Please share your venue
leads via www.bit.ly/VenueLeads. Together we'll build a stronger progressive
movement in Boston. (We'll be updating this form with additional a/v
questions shortly - thanks to the help of folks who shared their expertise).

For Justice,
