Humanity Needs Revolution.  Revolution Books Needs You!

Cost to run RB - $2200 monthly
Revolution Books needs to raise $1000 by the beginning of June to pay essential expenses and remain functioning. There's an urgent need and a critical role you can play to get RB over this hurdle and go into the summer stronger, putting it on a firmer financial footing and expanding its reach.
 You Need to Be Part of This.

Revolution Books is like no other place in Chicago. People dig into where the emergencies humanity faces stem from and how they can be tackled through revolution.Bengladesh Rev Newsp Cover
Whether the calculated, profit-driven slaughter of 1000 mainly women workers in Bangladesh, the Guantanamo torture camp or California solitary confinement cells, or new milestones in polluting the atmosphere and fueling climate change, the world is a horror.  But it does not have to remain that way and this is precisely why RB exists.

There is no place else, no other bookstore, in Chicago that is a center of a movement for revolution which is  
working to fundamentally change the world and emancipate humanity. Today is a moment when this alternative much reverberate much more broadly throughout society and connect with suffering, anguished and often rebelling humanity.
