SoJust Skillshare: Social Media 101

You may have noticed that Socializing for Justice is not an issue-based organization. We host events that draw progressives of all stripes that are like-minded but not necessarily like-identified. Our philosophy focuses on creating social spaces that allow for the possibility of cross-issue connections, discussion spaces that challenge our myopic view of the world and now we're introducing skillshares which will support all of us desiring to make a difference in the world.

We're very excited that ADAORA ASALA has agreed to facilitate this training.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1st - 6:00-8:30PM
Why are millions of people using Facebook and what the tweet is Twitter? This 90-minute skillshare will cover the "what" and the "why" behind Social Media. Learn basic uses of popular tools like Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube, including how to keep up to date with and support your favorite causes, or champion your own!

6:00-6:30 Socializing - bring your own dinner
6:30-8:00 Training
8:00-8:30 Q & A and more socializing

RSVP at www.sojust.org (our official website - and while there check out SoJust's Calendar of Progressive Events in Boston)
COST: $5-$10 at the door

Hope you'll join us for this and future skillshares. Is there a skill you want to learn? Is there one you can offer? Let us know!

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.

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).

With almost 1500 members and 4+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue community in Boston, 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.
