Feeling Burnt Out? Self-Care is a Revolutionary Act!
This workshop is designed for activists, artists, healers, change agents
and YOU. You know how to revolutionize, but do you know how to refuel? We
all deserve the respect and care that we are creating on behalf of others.
The more present and whole we can be, the more effective we will be in our
activist work. In a culture where productivity and profit are valued more
than community and caring, self-care is a revolutionary act!

Socializing for Justice - www.sojust.org
Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this
"Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and
build new visions for our movement(s).

SoJust is not a non-profit 501(c)(3). We're a grassroots volunteer-run
member-supported cross-issue progressive community that's been growing
steadily since August 2006. We have 2100+ members, hosted 130+ events and
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/donate> or at any of our events. Thank you
for helping us continue to provide a space for like-minded progressives of
all stripes.

YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
