By Courage to Resist. April 15, 2013
Courage to Resist is a proud recipient of a grant this tax day by the Northern California War Tax Resistance and the People’s Life Fund. The People’s Life Fund’s money comes from conscientious war tax resisters in Northern California who deposit or donate all or part of the amount they would otherwise pay to the federal government in income taxes. Courage to Resist will share $20,000 with about 20 other SF Bay Area organizations. Our share will be used to assist war resister Kimberly Rivera and her family. Kimberly will likely be sentenced to military prison on April 29, while her husband is left to care for their four small children.
