For My Birthday This Year:
Please make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation to THE WE EMPOWERMENT CENTER
My birthday is coming up, and on February 11, I’ll be 58 years old. I’ve been an activist all my life, I was born into activism, and this year, along with Board Members, Andy Griggs and Xeres Villanueva we are launching a wonderful and important nonprofit organization: The WE Empowerment Center.
This year resources for small community organizations, individuals, activists, artists is more important than ever. The obstacles and oppression we are facing is enormous and we need the tools and organizational infrastructure to combat these forces.
The WE Empowerment Center offers organizational support and financial sponsorship to nonprofit efforts: community organizing, activism, artists, community groups, who might not be able to access the benefits of the nonprofit industrial complex.
Unlike other nonprofits who offer financial sponsorship, our process is streamlined and supportive: we offer sponsorship to smaller groups that might not be able to get sponsorship from larger organizations.
By becoming one of our projects, but with a lot of autonomy, groups and individuals can raise tax deductible funds within our infrastructure, support and nonprofit status. We already are affiliated with several well known and dynamic projects, including Emma Rosenthal Studios.
We’re just starting out, so we need a bit of seed money to put together our infrastructure. My other board members and I have considerable organizational experience and our success is assured. The funds from this pitch will go to providing salaries to Board Member and Projects Director: Xeres Villanueva and to our Archivist, Glenda Bonilla. These two outstanding organizers and community members give so much to others and their work has such profound value, we hope others will support us in compensating them for their labor.
Please make a tax deductible donation to The WE Center, as your way of wishing me a happy birthday. No donation is too small and all donations are tax deductible.
