Skillshare: Socially Responsible Investing

*Uncertain how to work towards a secure financial future while living out 
your values?* *Join Socializing for Justice for a Skillshare on Socially 
Responsible Investing on Monday, July 11, 6:00 - 8:30 PM at The NonProfit 
Center by South Station.

*RSVP at www.sojust.org (space is limited) - newcomers welcome!

SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common 
values but may work on different issues. We create social spaces that allow 
for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a Skillshare Series, 
hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which increases our individual capacity for 
movement building.

6:00-6:30 Socializing - * bring your own dinner*  (microwave and water 
cooler available)
6:30-8:30 Training and Q & A 

 *Socially Responsible Investing*
How do we manage our finances to best sustain ourselves and support our 
vision of a more just economy? This is a chance to learn investment basics 
and discuss financial management with a local progressive activist and 
finance professional. No prior knowledge expected: we'll start with 
fundamentals and definitions. Participants should come away with a more 
intuitive sense of how to use investments, and ideas about how to research 
and choose between different financial tools without checking your politics 
at the door.

Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring 
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this "Movement 
Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and build new 
visions for our movement(s).

With over 1750 members and almost 5 years of creating a diverse cross-issue 
community in Boston (95+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best place 
to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking for 
while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

*YES, WE MEAN YOU.* We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual 
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone 
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
