When a problem comes along... You must Whippet!
Whippet Lab is experimenting with ways of doing social justice work differently. The Social Justice Club aims to turn the tradition of elite, members-only, private “social clubs” on its head. While Whippet Lab will always remain open to everyone, like those “old boys’ clubs,” Whippet Lab has a membership and, at times, members-only events. These events are co-sponsored with local and international non-profit organizations dedicated to fighting for social justice. These can include, for example, organizations fighting against racism, homophobia, sexism, classism, climate change, or who support animal rescue, the arts, literature, economic equality, immigration, feminism, and refugees.
Events can be after-works, panel discussions, speakers, dinners, or parties. For benefits, we donate our space and plan the event with the organization – these are open to the public, though Social Justice Club members get notified first about pre-sale tickets and a 50% discount on entry fee (always a donation to the co-sponsoring organization). Members get the chance to meet people from organizations with which they might not otherwise be involved, creating a broad-spectrum social justice network and finding ways for activists, organizers, artists, theorists, and others to work together on overlapping issues and projects.
Membership is 500 SEK. With this, you will receive a 5% discount on your bill at Whippet Lab during your membership year. And don’t forget: members can suggest and help co-organize events with groups they support. Come in to Whippet Lab and ask to join!
