New contributors, increased goals
boost SWP Party-Building Fund
A total of $14,788 was collected in the best week to date for the $100,000 SWP Party-Building Fund. Two areas, Chicago and Des Moines, increased their quotas.

New contributors are being won among new and renewing Militant subscribers, who are signing up to receive the socialist paper as part of an international effort to expand its readership.

“We had a table up with the Militant, Pathfinder books and a bucket asking for contributions to the SWP fund during the longshore workers roll call outside the union hiring hall in Fort Lauderdale,” reported Anthony Dutrow from Miami. “Long-time subscriber Alice Bynes dropped $10 in the bucket with a smile on her face as she hurried to get to the berth for her assignment.” Three other longshore workers donated the following week, said Dutrow.

James Alexander in Chicago is another new contributor. He mailed in a one-year renewal after signing up for a three-month introductory subscription last fall. “I read about the fund in the Militant,” Alexander said. “So when someone called about it, I was glad to help out.”

Send contributions to the SWP office nearest you (see directory on page 8) or directly to the SWP National Office at 306 W. 37th St., 10th floor, New York, NY 10018.
