Defend and Free Political Prisoners in North America

Dear friends and comrades!

The 2014 North American Anarchist Black Cross conference is a mere three months away and we have a long way to go before reaching our fundraising goal! In an effort to really kickstart the final fundraising push, we are asking for your help in raising $2000 by midnight on June 22nd! This money will help us cover the cost of the space for the conference. OR it will help us cover airfare to fly in comrades from across the continent to join us in Denver. OR it will help us cover the cost of food for the weekend. You get the picture…

For the last three years, our international conference has brought together dozens of people from all over North America who are involved in the struggle to support, act in solidarity with, and free our comrades. Rarely is there a time when we are all in the same space—sharing our ideas and energy, strategizing, building networks, and creating new projects to strengthen our struggles and movements. The conference has also been a time for intergenerational, cross-movement dialogue—a time to learn from the past and look to the future.

When you donate to the conference, your money is essentially seed money for the beginning stages of exciting new projects and the revitalization of old ones. It is a contribution to the future of our movements and to the freedom of our imprisoned comrades.

But just in case you need more of an incentive… we would like to offer gifts for money donated!

A donation of $10: 2 Political Prisoner Support stickers*
A donation of $25: 1 Political Prisoner Support t-shirt** and 2 stickers
A donation of $40: 1 t-shirt, 2 stickers, and a book***
A donation of $60: 2 t-shirts, 2 stickers and a book
A donation of $60+: the gifts for the $60 donation plus our undying love and devotion

If you would like to make a donation but not receive the gifts, please make note of that. Once you donate using the link below, we will contact you about your gifts. If you would like to send a check or money order, rather than using the link below, contact us at naabcconference[at]riseup[dot]net to find out where to send it.

Again, we are pushing to raise $2000 by midnight on June 22nd. With your help, we can do it!

Yours in solidarity,

Until all are free!
