Learn tips for writing a strong resume, how to weave the right story on your cover letter to have the greatest impact, and leave with a personal “mission statement” help you with networking on and off line.

Socializing for Justice -
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 provides access to affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for movement building.

With over 2400 members and 7+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue community in Boston (170+ 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.
