Take Action! Storytelling That Inspires
Whether your focus is raising money, recruiting staff and volunteers, or educating your audience about key issues, it all comes down to storytelling strategy.  Rachel Jellinek will share tips on crafting your message, including some pitfalls to avoid.  She'll share examples from the videos she's created through her company Reflection Films.This interactive session will also include an opportunity for participants to share their experiences with storytelling. The focus of this conversation will be on storytelling ideas and what to do with them, not on the technical aspects of video production.

Rachel Jellinek is a partner at Reflection Films, an award-winning video production company. They produce marketing, fundraising, and training videos for a variety of nonprofits and businesses. Ms. Jellinek holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan and a Master of Arts from Harvard University.  Prior to Reflection Films, she worked on educational campaigns at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, as a health educator for children, as a director for a literacy program, and as a community relations liaison at MIT.  Her experience in the nonprofit world lends itself well to understanding how to tell client stories in an emotionally compelling and entertaining way.

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 almost 2500 members and 7+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue community in Boston (175+ 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.
