UJP Activist: encuentro5 Turns 5! Commemorative Dinner


Celebrating 5 solid years and 5 inspiring honorees!

When: Wednesday, December 7, 2011, 7:00 pm
Where: Encuentro 5 • 33 Harrison Ave, 5th Floor • Chinatown T • Boston


As a  dynamic movement-building space, encuentro 5 has balanced the day-to-day
needs of grassroots organizations and community groups with the wide-ranging
social change goals that their organizers embrace for 5 solid years of
solidarity and inspiration.

For e5, challenging the militarism and corporate globalization that
institutionalize the current moment of capitalism and white supremacy has meant
offering a space for the spontaneous needs of local groups, housing over a dozen
resident organizations, offering offices for new projects and small NGOs,
archiving the efforts of social movements, providing cross-movement
institutional memory, resourcing emerging projects with much needed research,
materials and equipment, and ongoing daily efforts of networking and support.

Although it has meant a lot of intense work, it has also been greatly inspiring
to connect with creative activists, engaging writers, soulful musicians and
dedicated community members. Together, we have made e5 a platform for major
demonstrations, thoughtful debates, heartwarming performances, and strategic
conversations as a review of the e5 website reveals.

Always thriving on the insights and energy of countless groups and individuals,
we chose five exemplary honorees who have contributed directly to e5's
programming and/or inspired the work we do. To honor them and to launch the
e5 movement-builders sustainer program, e5 is hosting its first annual,
Commemorative Dinner, at 7pm Wednesday, December 7, 2012. Click here to RSVP

The five honorees are:


Sergio Reyes, a Chilean-born revolutionary. musician, and founder of the Boston
May Day Committee and a founder of Latin at s for Social Change


Avi Chomsky, a scholar and activist whose work connects people across borders



Paul Shannon, a peace movement veteran active in United for Justice with Peace
and a founder of the Majority Agenda Project who has been on staff at the
American Friends Service Committee for over 30 years.



Robin Jacks, a long-time activist challenging low-wage work in the South and a
founder of the #OccupyBoston effort



Dorotea Manuela, a founder of the Boston Rosa Parks Human Rights Day Committee,
a member of the Downtown Workers Center collective, and an active defender of
Puerto Rican sovereignty.

On December 7th, join us to honor these 5 outstanding movement builders, to
celebrate the extraordinary efforts of the e5 Residents and the expansive social
justice community, and to make e5 a sustainable effort for 2012! Click here to
