*Are you ready to meet like-minded progressives and get connected to great
social justice organizations in Boston*? SoJust is all about building a
cross-cultural, cross-issue progressive community and network in Boston

back in SOCIAL JUSTICE. We focus on creating welcoming spaces that foster
relationship-building across issue silos. Join us if you are ready to go

*Recess for Justice*
*July 28, 11:00AM-1:00PM*
Southwest Corridor (Stony Brook)
It's time for Recess! Put down your work and join us for some outdoor fun.
Bring your favorite outdoor game - we'll likely have: a Frisbee, kickball &
chalk (for 4-square!), jump rope, a basketball and whatever other
randomness we can think of.
*RSVP for Recess: *http://www.sojust.org/events/67304382/

*Skillshare: Socially Responsible Investing by Joby Gelbspan*
*August 6, 6:00 - 8:30PM*
*The NonProfit Center (South Station)*
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.
*RSVP for Investing: *http://www.sojust.org/events/71752642/

*Skillshare: Art of the Schmooze by Robbie Samuels*
*September 6, 6:00-8:30PM*
The NonProfit Center (South Station)
Forming and cultivating relationships is at the heart of any successful
fundraising campaign, volunteer drive, committee effort or community
building activity. This training will give you the confidence to pursue
your personal goals - from the importance of shaking hands and making eye
contact, to tips on the best opening line and how to exit a conversation
gracefully. An amazing side benefit is that you'll learn how to create a
welcoming community space by keeping an eye out for outliers, considering
yourself a host instead of a guest and knowing how to compliment someone
without "othering" them.
