Uncertain how to work towards a secure financial future while living out your values? Join Socializing for Justice for a Socially Responsible Investing Skillshare on August 5,
6:00 - 8:30 PM.
How do we manage our savings to best sustain ourselves and support our vision of a more just
economy? This is a chance to learn investment basics and discuss financial management with a
local progressive activist and finance professional. No prior knowledge expected: we'll start with
fundamentals and definitions. Participants should come away with a more intuitive sense of how to use investments, and ideas about how to research and choose between different financial tools without checking your politics at the door.
Register at http://www.sojust.org - Newcomers always welcomed!
Fee: $10-$20 (sliding scale) is split with the trainer.
Limited space - register ahead of time.
Credit cards accepted online. Cash only at the door (if space available).

Socializing for Justice - http://www.sojust.org
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 hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly Skillshare Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which increases our individual capacity for movement building.
With 2300 members and almost 7 years of creating a diverse cross-issue community in Boston (160 events!), Socializing for Justice is the best place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.
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.
