> welcoming community spaces.
> Socializing for Justice is the brainchild of community organizer,
> fundraiser and event planner, Robbie Samuels. For the past decade, Robbie
> has been a leader within Boston’s progressive community. He has been
> recognized for his efforts - in 2011, his birthday, September 16, was
> declared "Robbie Samuels Day" by the Boston City Council. In creating
> SoJust, Robbie has combined fun, socializing and cross-issue mobilization
> as never before.
> The vision for SoJust comes from Robbie’s first hand experience. He wanted
> to address what he was repeatedly finding in his work – that individuals,
> organizations, and campaigns stunted their effectiveness by focusing solely
> on single-issue work. He shares, “I believed we could get people
> representing multiple progressive issues into a room, connect based on our
> overlapping values and more effectively fight for social justice. We need
> to be building a cross-issue progressive movement."
> At Connecting for Justice, participants can experience the connecting
> power of Socializing for Justice for themselves. There will be Action
> Stations to link attendees with local organizations, “I’m Looking For” and
> “Ask Me About” tags, a Jobs Board filled with openings from other social
> change groups and a free Literature Table. These features mirror options on
> SoJust’s website, www.sojust.org, an online hub where social justice
> events, job and volunteer opportunities from other social change
> organizations are cross-posted on the Calendar and Message Board.
> Get involved with Boston’s fastest-growing cross-issue progressive
> community. Network with like-minded progressives and find the opportunities
> you’ve been searching for. In the words of Robbie, “If you think this
> group MIGHT be for you – it is.” Learn more and RSVP for Connecting for
> Justice at www.sojust.org.
