Hey fellow activists and organizers,



I know I'm usually promoting SoJust - but that's not my actual day job. I
am the Senior Manager of Events and Donor Engagement at Gay & Lesbian
Advocates & Defenders. We have our annual fundraising dinner coming up on
Friday, October 26th. We typically have about 50 volunteers, so it’s a
great opportunity to network with other young professionals in the area.
The information is below, let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks!

Robbie
