Cocktails for Justice
Cocktails for Justice
Join Socializing for Justice at the Alchemist Lounge in Jamaica Plain on Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 7PM to meet cool, like-minded people and unwind after work.
Drop by if you want to cross-promote your events and campaigns while enjoying great cocktails, 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.
Don't drink? That's fine. Plenty of folks don't. The emphasis here is less on the cocktails and more on the socializing. And even more so on the justice.
No Program. No Speaker. Just us.
RSVP at www.sojust.org - newcomers always welcome!
Fee: $2 to cover group expenses.
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 event is all ages. No need to be legal drinking age. Well, unless you want to order that sort of beverage. Once at Alchemist you'll find us inside the lounge - on the left (what? you were surprised?). The Alchemist Lounge is at 435 South Huntington, Jamaica Plain, MA
Want to connect outside of SoJust events? Members view and post events, job & volunteer announcements, roommate searches, etc. on the website - just click 'Messages'. The SoJust Calendar is packed with social justice-related events held throughout Greater Boston. Help us keep it filled - tell us about events you hear about.
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."
