event?* It’s time to meet 120+ friendly SoJusters!
*Meet like-minded progressives and get connected to great social justice
organizations in Boston*. SoJust is all about building a 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.
*RSVP: www.sojust.org <http://www.sojust.org> - Newcomers always
collected at the door. (One raffle ticket per $10 to win a $25 Trader Joe's
*A great spread of complimentary appetizers will be provided.*
*THIS IS NOT A MEETING *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, a
CATALYST CORNER staffed by our amazing STARZ (regular attendees), our
wildly popular JOBS BOARD, and ACTION STATIONS to make it even more likely
you'll find 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? 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 will be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network!
Email robbie at robbiesamuels.com for more information about the Action
ACCESSIBILITY: Must be 21+ to enter after 7PM. The venue is physically
accessible - elevator is in the back of the room and we've been told that
bathrooms are big enough for manual, but not motor-powered, wheelchairs.
PARKING: Lir is across from the Hynes Convention Center. Parking near Lir
can be difficult - you could get lucky or you could drive around for 30 or
more minutes. There are parking garages by Back Bay station and Sheraton
hotel. Best bet is to take the T to Back Bay or Hynes Convention Center
(which is the closest T stop).
*HELP SPREAD THE WORD!*
