Join Socializing for Justice for our discussion group: "The Body" for Justice. POV: Body Image* on Monday, November 16th, 6:00pm at Sweetwater Cafe by Boylston T stop.

To connect to "the work" and each other in more intentional ways, SoJust is hosting monthly discussion groups focused on "The Body" through various points of view (POV). This is a place for us to explore what we have in common and where we differ on topics that are important to us. This is not a seminar - there will be no presentation - come with questions you'd like to explore. We'll creatively use the space: smaller groups to focus on specific topics, pairing up and popcorn questions. Join us to learn more about yourself and other SoJusters!

So you know what to expect here's what we have planned:
6pm Socializing - order dinner/drinks (30 min)
6:30 Gather in large circle for introductions (30 min)
7pm Break into small groups (30 min)
7:30 Report back (10 min)
7:40 Meet in pairs (10 min)
7:50 Report Back (10 min)
8pm Closing (10 min)
8:10 Socializing some more (20 min)
8:30 End

"The Body" for Justice Discussions are every 3rd Monday at Sweetwater Cafe. Possible future POV: race, feminism, gender, dating, war, abortion, safer sex, veganism and... your suggestion.

RSVP at Newcomers always welcomed!

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. 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.

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!
