To begin the countdown to Socializing for Justice's 3rd birthday later this summer - we're heading back to where we held our 3rd event back in October 2006.
Join us for Bowling for Justice at Sacco's Bowl Haven* in Davis Square on Tuesday, June 9, at 5:30 pm.
(Sacco's features candlepin bowling. Whether it's your first time or you're a candlepin pro, just come to enjoy yourself.)
RSVP at www.sojust.orgNewcomers always welcomed!
Cost: $10 per person to bowl + $2 to cover group expenses. We're reserving 4 lanes at a group rate for 2 hours so RSVP to reserve your spot!
Join us if you want to cross-promote your events and campaigns, are new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in, or you've been looking for like-minded progressives to hang with in Boston. Newcomers always welcomed!
At SoJust events you can hang out with friends, make new ones, find a date, get the scoop on a job, and find out what's going on this weekend - political or social. And the best part is that SoJust members share your vision of building a more just world.
No Program. No Speaker. Just us.
Hey Organizers! If you're involved with a group or project and want to spread the word bring flyers for the free lit table - and there'll be lots of opportunity to schmooze and network.
*This is an all ages event - Sacco's doesn't serve or allow alcohol but you can bring in your dinner and we'll provide some snacks.

From our FAQs:
"It's not very easy for me to meet new people and I'm not really one for small talk at bars."
We hear you. That's why at SoJust events, in addition to traditional name tags, we have "Ask Me About" and "Looking For" tags. That way you can slap whatever you're into lately up on your shirt and wait for fellow SoJusters to approach you. These seem to do the trick of moving past the basic "what do you do for work? where do you live?" questions to conversations that lead to more substantial connections.
"What actually happens at events?"
You'll always be greeted by friendly folks who can help get you socializing, introduce you to people, and chat with you about questions or wishes. It's likely a few people will be there promoting their campaigns and issues (yes, SoJust welcomes that sort of behavior). At our bigger events, there's always a literature table to toss down flyers, postcards, and other paraphenalia about events around town. Most importantly, we can pretty much guarantee there will be someone there you've never met before. As one of our members said, "You are bringing together people who might never get together otherwise - if that ain't a step towards justice I don't know what is."
Want to connect outside of SoJust events? Members can view and post events, job & volunteer announcements, roommate searches, etc. on the 'Message Board' and are encouraged to suggest and co-host events.
