Hey fellow activists and organizers!
*It's finally time for Connecting for Justice! Meet like-minded progressives
and get connected to great social justice organizations in Boston*. *Haven't
been to a Socializing for Justice event?* It’s time to meet the friendly
faces of the group that’s grown to 1750 members, hosted over 95 events and
fostered hundreds of connections since our founding 4 1/2 years ago.
Join us if you are ready to go BEYOND ALLIES and build a CROSS-ISSUE
*RSVP at www.sojust.org
Cost:* $2-$10 collected at the door. *Newcomers always welcomed!*
($10 includes raffle ticket for a $20 Trader Joe's gift card)*
*THIS IS NOT A MEETING - IT'S A FUN NETWORKING SOCIAL!*
No Program. No Speaker. Just Us. For Justice.
*As always we'll help you meet people - so no worries if you're new to
SoJust*, plus we'll have "I'M LOOKING FOR" and "ASK ME ABOUT" tags, a
CATALYST CORNER staffed by our amazing STARZ (regular attendees), our wildly
popular JOBS BOARD and ACTION STATIONS to make it even more likely you'll
find the right connections.
*WANT TO CROSS-PROMOTE YOUR EVENTS AND CAMPAIGNS?* Looking for like-minded
progressives to hang out with in Boston? Are you new to the area and looking
for groups to get involved in? Are you psyched about building strong
cross-issue coalitions? Join us!
*YES, WE MEAN YOU.* Members are all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. Some just moved to Boston
and others were born here. We hope you see someone like yourself and meet
someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
*HEY ORGANIZERS!* If you're involved with a group or project and want to
spread the word bring flyers for the free lit table. ACTION STATIONS - if
you have an action that can be done in 2 minutes (sign a petition) or within
2 weeks of the event (attend rally, stuff mass mailing) bring it so
SoJusters can get connected to you and your work. This is not a typical
tabling event, there'll be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network!
Email robbie at sojust.org for more information about the Action Stations.
*Lir is at 903 Boylston Street across from the Hynes Convention Center.
Parking near Lir is really hard - you could get lucky or you could drive
around for 30 or more minutes. There are parking garages by Back Bay
station. Best bet is to take the T to Back Bay or Hynes Convention Center
(which is the closest T stop). The venue is open to anyone over 18 (must be
21+ to enter after 7PM) and is partially physically accessible - elevator is
at the back of the venue and bathrooms are big enough for manual, but not
*HELP SPREAD THE WORD!*

*SOCIALIZING FOR JUSTICE - www.sojust.org*
SoJust is all about building a cross-issue progressive community, network
and movement in Boston. We're doing it by putting the SOCIAL back in SOCIAL
JUSTICE. We focus on creating welcoming spaces that foster
relationship-building across issue silos.
*SoJust isn't a non-profit 501(c)(3).* We're a grassroots volunteer-run
member-supported cross-issue progressive community that's been growing
steadily since August 2006. We have over 1750 members, we've hosted 95+
events and we manage an online hub of progressive events and resources at
www.sojust.org. If you've benefited from this cross-issue progressive
network please contribute the suggested annual membership fee of $25. You
may do this online <http://www.sojust.org/dues/> or at any of our events.
Thank you for helping us continue to provide a space for like-minded
progressives of all stripes.
