Hey fellow activists and organizers,

I want to thank all of you who made it to SoJust's 6th birthday party last 
Thursday - such amazing energy! I can't believe we've grown to over 2100 
members and hosted 130+ events since September 2006 - not bad for a 
grassroots group funded by our generous members. Check out these great 
photos <http://www.sojust.org/photos/10786742/> and book Leise Jones

for your next event.

*Skillshare: Effective Volunteer Engagement<http://www.sojust.org/events/78279732/>by Lori Tsurda
Monday, October 1 at 6PM - NonProfit Center by South Station*
How do we attract and engage motivated volunteers who will further our 
charitable work? We will consider motivation, from the benefits of 
volunteering, to our needs and the effort required to manage/support 
volunteers. No prior knowledge expected - we'll start with fundamentals. 
Participants will come away with a position description template and 
strategic approaches for customized volunteer recruitment and engagement.

Socializing for Justice -  <http://www.sojust.org/>www.sojust.org<http://www.sojust.org>
SoJust is all about building a cross-cultural, cross-issue progressive 
community, network and movement in Boston. We're doing it by putting the 
SOCIAL back in SOCIAL JUSTICE. We focus on creating welcoming spaces that 
foster relationship-building across issue silos. 

SoJust isn't a non-profit 501(c)(3) and receives no outside funding. We're 
a grassroots volunteer-run member-supported cross-issue progressive 
community that's been growing steadily since August 2006. We have over 
2,100 members, we have hosted 130+ events and we manage an online hub of 
progressive events and resources at www.sojust.org. If you've benefited 
from this cross-issue progressive network please contribute the suggested 
annual membership fee of $25. You may do this online<http://www.sojust.org/dues/>or at any of our events. Thank you for helping us continue to provide a 
space for like-minded progressives of all stripes.
