What I'm putting my energy into these days...

Hopefully you can join us for Socializing for Justice's discussion group next Monday. If we're serious about building a cross-issue community, network and movement, then it's crucial that we consider what it means to be an ally.

What It Means To Be An Ally [SoJust Discussion]
Monday, 3/22 at 6PM - Downtown Crossing
This is not a seminar - there will be no presentation - come with questions you'd like to explore. We'll creatively use the space with smaller groups to focus on specific topics. Join us to learn more about yourself and other SoJusters!

RSVP for Ally Discussion: http://www.meetup.com/sojust-tm/calendar/12822944/
Spread the word: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=349395437917&ref=ts
It's odd but we have tons of RSVPs on facebook and very few on meetup.com - please update your RSVP as we need a headcount for the restaurant and we pay for this space. Thanks!

More places to find me in the next few weeks:
