We regret this late announcement, but today's event with the CHICA Project
has been postponed to Thursday, February 13, 2014. The change is due to a
scheduling error on e5's part. We are grateful that the CHICA Project
adjusted their schedule to our benefit.


Dear friends,

 encuentro5 invites Boston’s
nonprofit <http://chriscoyier.net/2010/06/17/nonprofit/> community and
local progressive organizations to a series of Brown Bag Lunches exploring
the many facets of non-profit organizations and social justice, spreading
networks, and encouraging collaboration.

Our upcoming Brown Bag Lunch presentation is next Thursday, October 24th at
1pm with the *Chica Project*. We hope you'll join us! You can view our
previous BBLS event with Renata Teodoro of the Student Immigrant Movement
at live.encuentro5.org

Bi-Monthly presentations will be offered on the 2nd and 4th Thursday
throughout the year. Each event lasts one hour: a 30 minute presentation
and 30 minute discussion/Q & A.
