Texas Hold’Em Poker & Spades – each player declares the radical cause (social justice org) they’re playing for and the pot goes to the winner’s group


Open for self-organized gaming; choose your own game or bring your own game; your event entry will go to the radical cause (social justice org) you choose


Always wanted to learn how to play poker? spades? dominoes? This is the night. Join us for lessons throughout the night.

CHOOSING YOUR CAUSE – Update coming soon

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 at!
*If you’re wondering who to choose, we suggest playing for any local/regional group funded by Resist, Inc. 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.)
