Hey fellow activists & organizers,
Bummer that it's going to rain Saturday, we could really use a sunny day
running around outside. But the weather forecast includes lightening bolts
and that makes it a lot less appealing to be in a large open field. Instead
we'll be heading to JP for Brunch for Justice!
*Saturday, June 25 - Brunch for Justice @ 11am*
* Join us even if you weren't planning to be at Recess for Justice. Arrive
by yourself or bring your hungry friends!
*JP Seafood serves traditional American breakfast dishes PLUS you can choose
from their sushi menu. Lots of options including vegan/vegetarian. From
personal experience we know you're going to enjoy it!
*RSVP so we have an accurate head count for the restaurant**:
*Spread the word with the Facebook event:
*Also, the rescheduled Bikes Not Bombs Bike-A-Thon is this Sunday!*
It looks like the weather is going to be much much nicer on Sunday - so you
can still get your outdoor fun in by joining the SoJusters who are riding at
the Green Roots Festival right after the ride. It's taking place on the same
field as where we had scheduled Recess - right across from the Stony Brook T
stop. Say hello to our Organizer Intern, Winter, at the SoJust table - it'll
be zir last week with us and we're grateful for all ze's done to support
SoJust the last 6 months.

SoJust team: www.bit.ly/BNB26.
See below for what else we have planned for this summer...
