Revolution Books faces a financial crisis. $1500 needs to be raised in the next 2 weeks.
What goes on at Revolution Books is more important than ever. On March 16 RB sponsored the premiere of BA Speaks: Revolution-Nothing Less! This marked the launch of something new in the world, powerfully making the case for the need and basis for revolution.
This year RB hosted author Rabbi Brant Rosen, screenedbeneath the blindfold with filmmaker Kathy Berger, participated in the Chicago Climate Crisis Conference, and went into the streets on the anniversary of Trayvon Martin's murder and for International Woman's Day. Our work involves exposing and resisting the ways humanity is beaten down and the planet is threatened, and getting deeply into how it does not have to be this way especially through bringing to people and engaging the path-breaking vision and strategy for a radically new society and world in the work of Bob Avakian.
$1500 is required in the next 2 weeks to cover operating costs. Your financial support and involvement in many ways is needed stay open and to expand RB's books, its work, and its presence.
Significant funds can be raised at upcoming used book sales in April and May at RB and during the huge Printers Row Lit Fest (June 8-9). To donate quality used books, drop books off or contact us for pick-up. And volunteer to help organize and staff book sales. Call 773.489.0930.
DONATE A COMPUTER
A PC and a printer in good working order, and a licensable edition of QuickBooks for PC, would be meaningful contributions to help keep Revolution Books going. And we always can use office supplies like plain paper, envelopes, etc.
DONATE FOR MATERIALS TO PAINT FRONT GRATE.
It will only take $150.00 to paint an attractive, attention-getting sign seen by thousands of motorists and bus riders on Ashland Ave., raising RB's profile and drawing more people into the store.
BUY YOUR BOOKS at Revolution Books where it really matters -- cutting edge books to provoke, give heart, and challenge the conventional wisdom that this planetary horror is the only way the world can be.
VOLUNTEER with RB. Help organize used book sales. Graffiti artists to paint grate, musicians, poets, graphic designers, fund raisers, or be part of an RB street team - you all have a mission at RB. If you have just one hour to volunteer, make it really count.
Think about what it means to have Revolution Books on the scene. Then think about a world without Revolution Books, locked within the boundaries of "what currently exists is the best you can get." Act now.
