The Courage to Resist August 2015 national newsletter (PDF) is arriving in mailboxes across the country in the next few days. In this issue you can read about the new call from military veterans for drone pilots to refuse to fly, an op-ed by Chelsea Manning describing her five years in prison so far, and more.
We also enclosed a challenge to our supporters to help pay for Chelsea Manning’s upcoming legal appeal before the US Army Court of Criminal Appeals.
Aside for forcing us to regularly evaluate and summarize our efforts, the point of these newsletters is to help us raise funds to sustain our work in support of the troops who have the courage to resist. So, please donate today!
Folks who we mail these newsletters to have have either donated, or contacted Courage to Resist for the first time, recently. Folks often ask, “Why even print and send actual hard-copies any more?” In order to for us to carry out our mission, successful and systematic fundraising is a necessity. Online appeals still only account for about half of our funding.
