Contributions grow to SWP ‘stimulus’ payout appeal

The special Socialist Workers Party appeal for donations from the one-time federal government “stimulus” payments now counts 41 contributors from around the U.S. The total stands at $45,220, and is growing!

The appeal for contributions toward the long-term work of the party was announced two and a half weeks ago in response to a number of requests from recipients asking how they should make out their check to the SWP.

“With great pleasure we send our contribution to help build the special fund,” writes Ruth Nebbia. Similar notes accompany many of the contributions. “We know the funds will be put to good use,” Vivian Sahner, a Walmart worker, wrote. “I’m happy to send this for the SWP’s work.”

Contributors have turned the appeal into an extraordinary reinforcement of the party’s ability to respond, now and going forward, to the unfolding deep-going economic and social crisis of capitalism. And to advance working-class struggle to end the exploitation of capital and build a new world.

To help augment the special appeal, send a check made out to the Socialist Workers Party to 306 W. 37th Street, 13th Floor, New York, NY 10018. On the memo line write “Special Fund.”
