It’s also the 202nd anniversary of the birthday of Karl Marx. 

Celebrate both!

Donate a few bucks to one of the few independent, non-nonprofit, all-volunteer activist groups left in Virginia: The VIRGINIA DEFENDERS FOR FREEDOM, JUSTICE & EQUALITY! (Not the only one, we didn’t say that. Just one of the few.) Your dollar goes directly to supporting community struggles and justice for prisoners, opposing Confederate statues, reclaiming Shockoe Bottom, building the antiwar movement and publishing Virginia’s only statewide progressive newspaper. 

You can make a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTION by sending a check or money order made out to “United Parents Against Lead” (our fiscal sponsor) to PO Box 23202, Richmond, VA 23223. (Minimum $25, please). Or, for a non-tax-deductible contribution of any amount, just log onto and click the “Donate” button on the right-hand side. We take debit or credit cards or PayPal. (And to REALLY get in our good graces, make it a monthly contribution. We love those.)
