Event Description

Meet like-minded progres

Lir Irish Pub

903 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02115

sives at Connecting for Justice on May 23 from 6-8:30PM at Lir Irish Pub and get connected to great social justice organizations in Boston. Have you been lurking on SoJust? It’s time to meet the friendly faces of the group that’s grown to almost 2250 members, hosted 150+ events and fostered hundreds of connections since our founding almost 7 years ago.

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 (our main website) and view Member Profiles, Message Board and Calendar of Progressive Events.

Cost: $5-$20 collected at the door. Newcomers always welcomed!
(every $10 includes raffle ticket for a $25 Trader Joe's gift card)
Complimentary appetizers will be provided.

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 at our CONNECTIONS CORNER, which is staffed by our amazing STARZ (regular attendees). We'll also have our wildly popular JOBS BOARD and ACTION STATIONS to make it even more likely you'll make the right connections.

Want to cross-promote your events and campaigns? 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. 

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. Email 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!
