Hey fellow activists and organizers,

Uncertain how to work towards a secure financial future while living out
your values? Then you definitely want to join us this Monday for a
skillshare that is back by popular demand.

Join Socializing for Justice for a Socially Responsible Investing
Skillshare on August 5, 6:00 - 8:30 PM.

How do we manage our savings to best sustain ourselves and support our
vision of a more just economy? This is a chance to learn investment basics
and discuss financial management with a local progressive activist and
finance professional. No prior knowledge expected: we'll start with
fundamentals and definitions. Participants should come away with a more
intuitive sense of how to use investments, and ideas about how to research
and choose between different financial tools without checking your politics
at the door.

Register at www.sojust.org - Newcomers always welcomed!

Fee: $10-$20 (sliding scale) is split with the trainer.

Limited space - register ahead of time.

Credit cards accepted online. Cash only at the door (if space available).

Socializing for Justice - <http://www.sojust.org/>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 hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common
values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow
for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly Skillshare
Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which increases our individual
capacity for movement building.

With 2300 members and almost 7 years of creating a diverse cross-issue
community in Boston (160 events!), Socializing for Justice is the best
place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking
for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

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.
