Investing In Justice


location 209 SW Oak St | 6 PM-8 PM Wednesday 03 February 2016 (PST)

There’s been a recent shift in how activists are trying to bring about social change, and SJF is at the forefront of this shift.

Come network with other socially conscious entrepreneurs & tech-folks, and find out how you can get involved with SJF!

This article has a great breakdown on this new trend of entrepreneurial activism:

For some activists, being entrepreneurial has meant the following things: treating their activist work like a business, turning to popular social media platforms to put out their own press releases and looking for people to invest in their initiative with money and not just good faith.
