If finding a new copy of Workers World in your mailbox or on your computer every week excites you, it’s time you started giving back to WW.
This weekly delivery of class truth — an infusion of Marxist-Leninist thought and class struggle — is now unusual in the United States. Workers World is one of the last weekly revolutionary socialist newspapers printed and distributed in this country. We are proud that we are able to hand the paper directly to workers at union meetings or on picket lines, in the subways or at bus stops, or at protests against police violence, or for $15 an hour and a union.
But printing, mailing and posting the paper 51 weeks a year cost a lot of money. Much more than is covered by our modest $30 subscription fee or $1 per issue. We feel strongly that we need to keep the price low so that the vast majority of people can afford it. All of our staff contribute their time, talent and socialist viewpoint to help subsidize the paper and make it accessible to our readers.
That’s why we appeal to our readers and subscribers for various kinds of financial help. Twice a year, spring and fall, we make an appeal for funds to specifically help subsidize production of WW. Now we’re about to conclude the Fall Fund Drive. We hope you’ll give as generously as you can so WW can begin a new year of struggle on a sound financial footing. Keeping the paper strong during the coming election year is essential to showing what sets our socialist candidates apart from other third parties, let alone the two ruling-class parties.
Write checks to Workers World Fund Drive, and send them to Workers World, 147 W. 24th St., 2nd floor, New York, NY 10011. Include your name and address. Or donate online at workers.org/articles/donate/.
If you’d like to help build the paper throughout the whole year, you can join the Workers World Supporter Program and give either a lump sum or a monthly donation. We set up the Workers World Supporter Program 38 years ago to invite our subscribers to join in building WW. Members receive a year’s subscription to WW, a monthly letter about timely issues or new publications from World View Forum, and five free trial subscriptions to give to friends — all for a donation of $75 a year. For $100 a year you also get any book from World View Forum. For $300 a year (only $25 a month) you get your pick of five books or PVN videos. You can always contribute more.
Take the time today to keep the voice of struggle for revolutionary socialism loud and clear by mailing a check to Workers World and indicate how you wish to contribute — either to the Fall Fund Drive or by joining the Workers World Supporter Program.
