Hi fellow activists and organizers,

I'm excited to share that I will be going to DC next weekend to be trained
as a Master Trainer for 99% Spring, a national campaign the week of April
9-15, when 100,000 Americans will be trained in non-violent direct action.
I'll be co-leading the Regional Trainers Boot Camp in Boston on March
24-25.

99% Spring needs more trainers!  See below for how to sign up to train
others in direct action or register for SoJust's 99% Spring Direct Action
Training on April 11. Get the skills you need to join dozens of actions
taking place in Boston this spring, including a Tax Day Action and a May
Day Action.

*Socializing for Justice: Occupy Boston<http://www.sojust.org/events/52607442/>
Wednesday, March 14, 6:00-8:30PM*
Lir on Boylston by Hynes Convention Center

*Socializing for Justice is throwing a party for Occupy Boston! *Occupy
Boston did not end when they were evicted from Dewey Square. Far from it.
There are dozens of active working groups and endless events and actions
taking place all around the city. General Assemblies are held several times
a week and all they're missing is *YOU! *SoJust is hosting this event so
you can connect with this vibrant movement and find your place among the
many volunteer opportunities. You'll meet members of several working groups
and learn about upcoming actions. Learn more at www.occupyboston.org.

*SoJust's 99% Spring: Direct Action Training*
*Wednesday, April 11, 6:00-9:00PM*
The NonProfit Center by South Station

Join with 100,000 other Americans across the country to learn how to tell
the story of what happened to our economy, the history of non-violent
direct action, and how to use that knowledge to fight the corrupting
influence of big money on our political system. With this 3-hour training
you'll be prepared to join dozens of actions taking place in Boston this
spring, including a Tax Day Action and a May Day Action.
