THE GAME ROOM
Open for self-organized gaming; choose your own game / bring your own game
CHOOSING YOUR CAUSE
The purpose of this event is to have fun while putting resources into organizing and movement building for collective liberation. Choose*** the cause you are playing for based on the following criteria:
1. grassroots group or organization
2. engaged in some form of organizing or movement building
3. building toward justice and liberation
4. working locally in boston/new england
*If you've got a question about our criteria or a group choice, just email us!
*If you're wondering who to choose, we suggest playing for any local/regional group funded by Resist or Haymarket People's Fund.
*We reserve the right to deny any proceeds going to groups that don't fit the criteria. (Get that capitalist white supremacist heteropatriarchy sh&t outta here.)
