what we've created together at our next big open house, *Connecting for
Justice, on Thursday, May 24 <http://www.sojust.org/events/55668702/>*.

get connected! Don't forget to register at www.sojust.org so we know how
much food to order.
I've often been asked how I manage to do so much and still sleep. I'm
revealing some of my best Productivity Tech Tips<http://www.sojust.org/events/64847462/>at our next Skillshare on June 4th. I'll be joined by one of our SoJust
STARZ, Jess Faulk. Ready to be one of the STARZ? Attend 3 events in a short
amount of time and you'll receive STARZ status.

*Register** at www.sojust.org **- Newcomers always welcomed!*
*Cost:* $5-$20 collected at the door.
(every $10 includes raffle ticket for a $25 iTune's gift card)*
Complimentary appetizers will be provided.
*THIS IS NOT A MEETING - IT'S A FUN NETWORKING SOCIAL!*
No Program. No Speaker. Just Us. For Justice.
*As always we'll help you meet people - so no worries if you're new to
SoJust*, plus we'll have "I'M LOOKING FOR" and "ASK ME ABOUT" tags at our
CONNECTIONS CORNER, which is staffed by our amazing STARZ (regular
attendees). We'll also have our wildly popular JOBS BOARD and ACTION
STATIONS to make it even more likely you'll make the right connections.
*WANT TO CROSS-PROMOTE YOUR EVENTS AND CAMPAIGNS?* Looking for like-minded
progressives to hang out with in Boston? Are you new to the area and
looking for groups to get involved in? Are you psyched about building
strong cross-issue coalitions? Join us!
*YES, WE MEAN YOU.* Members are all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. Some just moved to Boston
and others were born here. We hope you see someone like yourself and meet
someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
*HEY ORGANIZERS!* If you're involved with a group or project and want to
spread the word bring flyers for the free lit table. ACTION STATIONS - if
you have an action that can be done in 2 minutes (sign a petition) or
within 2 weeks of the event (attend rally, stuff mass mailing) bring it so
SoJusters can get connected to you and your work. This is not a typical
tabling event, there'll be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network!
Email robbie at sojust.org for more information about the Action Stations.
*The venue is open to anyone over 18 (must be 21+ to enter after 7PM) and
is partially physically accessible - elevator is at the back of the venue
and bathrooms are big enough for manual, but not motor-powered,
wheelchairs. Lir is across from the Hynes Convention Center. Parking near
Lir is really hard - you could get lucky or you could drive around for 30
or more minutes. There are parking garages by Back Bay station. Best bet is
to take the T to Back Bay or Hynes Convention Center (which is the closest
