Next week we will be announcing on our email list a new premium for donating members, "Prohibition," the recent documentary by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick made for PBS. Read Phil Smith's film review of "Prohibition" in Drug War Chronicle here.
Copies of "Prohibition," on DVD or Blu-ray, will be available through StoptheDrugWar.org at no additional charge to members donating $50 or more. To make a donation to StoptheDrugWar.org, visit our online donation form -- if you do so before next week when we update the donation form, you can request a copy of "Prohibition" by writing us a note in the comment box. Also, if you have donated recently and think you would have liked to receive "Prohibition" with your donation, please let us know -- we'll be glad to send you a copy if you've donated $50 or more in the last few months, or to combine a smaller donation you've made with a new donation for the difference to qualify you for the offer.
Please note that even with the nonprofit, bulk discount, we are spending nearly $25 per copy to purchase these and send them to you -- if you can afford to donate more than $50, or to supplement your $50 donation with a small, continuing monthly donation, I hope you'll consider doing so. If gift items are not important to you, I hope you'll consider sending a donation that's entirely for our work.
Dozens of StoptheDrugWar.org supporters who have contributed to our organization in recent months to help us secure and prepare our programs for the new year. Copies of the email messages they responded to are online: click here to read our appeal for support for our blog and our online legislative center; click here for more information on what the legislative center does for our efforts, and click here for some reasons to support the Drug War Chronicle newsletter.
Donations to our organization can be made online at http://stopthedrugwar.org/donate, or they can be mailed to: DRCNet Foundation (tax-deductible), P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036; or Drug Reform Coordination Network (non-deductible for lobbying), same address. (Contact us for information if you wish to make a donation of stock.)
Thank you for standing with us to stop the drug war's cruelties and meet the opportunity this time offers to make a brighter future. And don't get discouraged by the challenges our movement and the cause are currently facing: Time, and the truth, are on our side!
David Borden, Executive Director
