Hello friends:

Grab a lunch and take a seat! We are gathering Boston’s
nonprofit <http://chriscoyier.net/2010/06/17/nonprofit/> community and
local progressive organizations in a series of Brown Bag Lunches to explore
the many facets of non-profit organizations and social justice, spread
networks, and encourage collaboration.
Join us for a 30 min presentation + 30 min discussion/Q & A. You can view
our previous BBLS events with Renata Teodoro of the Student Immigrant
Movement and Alex Papali of the Green Justice Coalition at
live.encuentro5.org. Visit our calendar <http://events.encuentro5.org> for
the full listing of upcoming lunch presentations.

This series is a partnership between encuentro5 and other non-profits and
community groups from the Greater Boston region.  The aim is to serve as a
resource to the progressive community, providing education and networking
opportunities, and to advance the goals of the presenting
organizations. As a whole, the series aims to build greater cross-issue
awareness and cooperation.

All Brown Bag Lunch events take place at encuentro5: 9 Hamilton Place, #2A,
