<span>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.</span></p>

OUR PRESENTERS <br>

<strong style="display:inline;font-family:inherit">Jess Faulk</strong> (<a  
href="http://www.twitter.com/jessfaulk"  
style="display:inline;font-family:inherit;text-decoration:none"  
target="_blank">@JessFaulk</a>) has been talking tech for over 20 years.  
Her very first computer (not counting her Atari) was a hand-me-down black  
and white Macintosh Classic. However, it was her Macintosh Performa that  
really made her fall in love with all of the possibilities that computers  
and the budding internet could bring into our lives. Since then she has  
developed an intense curiosity for new technology and how to make it useful  
in our day to day lives. Jess also has a strong interest in design, and  
tries to find ways to wed her love for graphics and tech (especially in  
designing infographics). Read Jess' blog at <a

style="display:inline;font-family:inherit">Robbie Samuels</strong> (<a  
href="http://www.twitter.com/robbiesamuels"  
style="display:inline;font-family:inherit;text-decoration:none"  
target="_blank">@RobbieSamuels</a>) is often asked how he manages to do so  
much and still sleep. These tips are the answer. His non-stop schedule  
includes running 2 events a month for Socializing for Justice, 23 events a  
year for Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders and 1-4 trainings a  
month "on the side". No wonder Boston City Council named his  
birthday "Robbie Samuels Day" in 2011! His very first computer  
was a Commodore 64 when he was in 3rd grade and he was hooked. Some thought  
he'd "go into computers", but instead he uses technology to  
enhance his life, increase his productivity and engage with his community.

and "Fundraising: Getting Past the Fear of Asking" at <a
