Every now and again you reach a point where you feel completely drained by your efforts to create positive change in the world. Join Socializing for Justice on December 3, 6:00 - 8:30 PM to learn how to refuel so you're in it for the long haul.
SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common values but may work on different issues. We create social spaces that allow for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a Skillshare Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which increases our individual capacity for movement building.
6:00-6:30 Socializing - bring your own dinner (microwave and water cooler available)
6:30-8:30 Training and Q & A
Fee: $10-$20 (sliding scale) is split with the trainer.
Limited space - register ahead of time: www.sojust.org
Credit cards accepted online. Cash only at the door (if space available).
Feeling Burnt Out? Self-Care is a Revolutionary Act!
This workshop is designed for activists, artists, healers, change agents and YOU. You know how to revolutionize, but do you know how to refuel? We all deserve the respect and care that we are creating on behalf of others. The more present and whole we can be, the more effective we will be in our activist work. In a culture where productivity and profit are valued more than community and caring, self-care is a revolutionary act!

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 is not a non-profit 501(c)(3). We're a grassroots volunteer-run member-supported cross-issue progressive community that's been growing steadily since August 2006. We have 2100+ members, hosted 130+ events and manage an online hub of progressive events and resources at www.sojust.org. If you've benefited from this cross-issue progressive network, please contribute the suggested annual membership fee of $25. You may do this online or at any of our events. Thank you for helping us continue to provide a space for like-minded progressives of all stripes.
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.
