Hey fellow activists and organizers,
Happy New Year! We're here to help you make your resolutions come true.

and our singles party, Dating While Progressive, on Valentine's Day. Did I
mention our Time Management skillshare on Monday, February 4? Details and
register at www.sojust.org.
We're just shy of our 2200 member at www.sojust.org. #2200 will be invited
to attend Connecting as our guest. Tell your friends!
*Connecting for Justice (@SoJust Open House) - Thursday, January 31 at Lir,
903 Boylston Street, Boston*
Meet like-minded progressives and get connected to great social justice
organizations in Boston. *Haven't been to a Socializing for Justice
time to meet the friendly faces of the group that’s grown to almost 2200
members, hosted 140+ events and fostered hundreds of connections since our
founding 6+ years ago.
SoJust is all about building a cross-cultural, cross-issue progressive
community and network in Boston. We're doing it by putting the SOCIAL back
in SOCIAL JUSTICE. We focus on creating welcoming spaces that foster
relationship-building across issue silos. Join us if you are ready to go
BEYOND ALLIES and build a CROSS-ISSUE PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT.
*Register* at www.sojust.org - newcomers always welcomed!
*Cost:* $5-$20 collected at the door (every $10 includes raffle ticket for
a $20 Trader Joe'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!
