Event Description

Did you resolve to “do more good” in the world? Join Socializing for Justice and make your New Year’s resolution count this year!

Meet like-minded progressives at Connecting for Justice on January 27 from 6-9PM 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 1600 members, hosted 85+ events and fostered hundreds of connections since our founding 4 years ago.

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. Newcomers always welcomed!

Cost: $2-$10 collected at the door

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 for more information about the Action Stations.

*The venue is open to anyone over 18 (must be 21+ to enter after 7PM) and is physically accessible - elevator is at the back of the venue. Lir is across from the Hynes Convention Center.

Help spread the word!

Socializing for Justice
SoJust is all about building a progressive cross-issue community, network and movement. 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. SoJust is NOT a non-profit 501(c)(3), we are a volunteer-run, member-driven, grassroots organization. We may seem like just another liberal social group but get involved to find out what we can create together.

This is one of SoJust's biggest and baddest events of the year and you don't want to miss it! I've met so many amazing and inspiring people through SoJust and I can't wait to reconnect with them and find out who else I'll meet!
