Marking Four Years of Building a Cross-Issue Progressive Network in Boston
1400 Members, 80 Events, and Countless Connections Made Since 2006

Boston-based network Socializing for Justice will commemorate its fourth anniversary with an Open House event called Connecting for Justice on September 16th from 6-9PM at Lir Irish Pub on Boylston Street in Boston. Held three times a year, this event draws hundreds of progressives of all stripes - diverse by age, race, gender, sexual orientation, newness to Boston and experience with activism. The purpose is to build a cross-issue progressive community, network and movement in Boston while putting the social back in social justice. Newcomers and long-time members will come together at Connecting for Justice to celebrate the remarkable success of this member-driven, volunteer-run grassroots group.

Socializing for Justice is the brainchild of local activist, community organizer and event planner Robbie Samuels. For almost 10 years, Robbie has been involved with Boston’s progressive community through a number of organizations. He has been recognized for his efforts - in 2009 he was the inaugural recipient of the History Project’s Lavender Rhino Award and the Theater Offensive’s Gender Hero Award. In creating SoJust, Robbie has combined fun, socializing and cross-issue mobilization as never before.
