SoJust is 7! That's right, it's been SEVEN years since our first event! Join us to celebrate 2300 members, 160+ events and countless connections made since 2006! Our birthday parties are always our biggest events. Haven't been to a Socializing for Justice event? It’s time to meet 120+ friendly SoJusters! Meet like-minded progressives at Connecting for Justice on September 12th from 6-8:30PM at Lir Irish Pub 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 at www.sojust.org (our main website) and view Member Profiles, Message Board and Calendar of Progressive Events. Cost: $5-$20 collected at the door. Newcomers always welcomed! (One raffle ticket per $10 to win a $25 Trader Joe's gift card.) Complimentary appetizers will be provided and yummy cupcakes thanks to our STARZ! This is not a meeting - it's a fun networking social! 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? Are you 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'll be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the Action Stations. ACCESSIBILITY 18+, must be 21+ to enter after 7PM. The venue is physically accessible - please note that the elevator is at the rear of the first floor and we've been told that bathrooms are big enough for manual, but not large motor-powered, wheelchairs. PARKING Lir is across from the Hynes Convention Center. Parking near Lir is really hard - you could get lucky or you could drive around for 30 or more minutes. There are parking garages by Back Bay station. Best bet is to take the T to Back Bay or Hynes Convention Center (which is the closest T stop). Help spread the word!
