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

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.

Socializing for Justice - www.sojust.org

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 11 years of creating a diverse
cross-issue community in Boston (230+ 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.
