Hey fellow activists and organizers!
We've teamed up with the Liberation Poker League to bring you a night of
meeting like-minded progressives, raising cash for liberation, and poker
action! Ante up for the revolution and fund local causes fighting against
oppression. New to poker? Come at 6:30pm for an intro-tutorial and then
enter the Beginner’s Tournament!

7:00 p.m.: Tournament starts
8:00 p.m.: Last buy-in/chance to enter
10:30 p.m.: Winners take it all (and by that we mean the pot goes to the
charity of their choice - this isn't gambling or a fundraiser for the host
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
All levels of experience are welcome for Tournament-style Texas Hold ‘Em
Poker- You choose the Pro or the Beginner’s Table. You buy-in (pay to play)
for $10 and declare your Radical Cause. You meet (and bet, bluff, and
showdown) activists and their causes from across Boston. If you win either
tournament, the money goes to your Radical Cause!
WHAT TO BRING
• $12 ($10 buy-in + $2 SoJust donation)
• More $ to buy back in if you get knocked out early
• A potluck dish or beverages
So look no further if you want to cross-promote your events and campaigns,
you're seeking like-minded progressives to hang out with in Boston, or are
new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in. At Socializing
for Justice (SoJust) events you can hang out with friends, make new ones,
find a date, get the scoop on a job, and find out what's going on this
weekend - political or social. And the best part is that SoJust members
share your vision of building a more just world.
