Vol. 80/No. 36      September 26, 2016


Join SWP going door to door! Contribute to campaign fund!

Campaigners for Alyson Kennedy and Osborne Hart, the Socialist Workers Party presidential ticket, receive a wide-open hearing as they knock on workers’ doors across the country and around the world. They explain today’s crisis of capitalist production and trade, join protests against the bosses’ efforts to make working people pay in an effort to boost their profits, and ask people to join the SWP.

Campaign supporters mounted a vigorous and very successful effort this summer, going door to door in working-class communities, introducing the party and its program, getting Are They Rich Because They’re Smart? and subscriptions to the Militant around, as well as gathering signatures to put the party on the ballot.

The campaign has raised the goal in its fund drive from $30,000 to $40,000 through the Nov. 8 election. This is needed both to cover unexpected expenses from the summer’s expanded campaigning in Vermont, Tennessee, Utah and elsewhere and to carry out a bold final two months of campaigning. Kennedy is currently in the U.K. and France, after which she will make a solidarity tour to the people of Puerto Rico, who live in Washington’s largest colony.

More than $22,000 has been collected so far and another $17,500 remains to be raised. This will come from contributions at public meetings where the candidates speak as they crisscross the country, that come in the mail and are offered from workers as campaigners knock on their doors.

Help us go over the top! Contact the party in your area (see Distributors list), or the Socialist Workers Party 2016 Campaign, 227 W. 29th St., 6th Floor, New York, NY 10001.
