How do we manage our savings to best sustain ourselves and support our
vision of a more just economy? Whether you’re investing now, informing
yourself for the future, or organizing a divestment or financial campaign,
this is a chance to learn investment basics and discuss all those questions
with a local progressive activist and finance professional. No prior
knowledge expected: we'll start with basic terms and concepts, and also
cover political choices and investment strategies. Participants gain a more
intuitive sense of how to use investments, and ideas about how to research
and choose between different financial tools without checking your politics
at the door.

*Joby Gelbspan* is a lifelong progressive activist who has dedicated her

Accounting and an MBA, with financial and management experience ranging

Socializing for Justice - www.sojust.org
Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this
"Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and
build new visions for our movement(s).

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 ProfDev
Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which increases our individual
capacity for movement building.

With over 3000 members and nearly 10 years of creating a diverse
cross-issue community in Boston (220 events!), Socializing for Justice is
the best place to find the great people, organizations and community you're
looking for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
