Dear Friends and Supporters,

Although Syracuse Cultural Workers is structured as a business, not a non-profit organization, we operate like a non-profit in many ways, including our low salaries.

We are confronted by so many issues: democracy under grave threat, abortion rights taken away in many parts of the country, racist backlash, climate chaos and ongoing war. 

Through it all we have published products for 40 years to support the movements that we, and you, believe in so deeply and work to strengthen. Now is one of those times when sales are slower than we'd like and donations are particularly important to help us keeping developing ideas, collaborating with artists and publishing products that support your work.

If you're able to make a donation to support that work, we'd be deeply grateful.

In Solidarity,

Andy Mager, Coordinator

I do believe that art is a powerful force for change and you are one of the best examples of this idea. -Maggie, Montreal, Canada

Keep those gutsy posters coming. This country is desperate for alternatives. -Spokane, WA

Dear Syracuse Peaceniks - the Peace Calendar is great. I hope to plug it everywhere I go. -Pete Seeger, Beacon, NY

I'm giving your "Reagan Is a Dangerous Hypocrite" poster to my 96 year old grandmother who hates Reagan! Your products warm our Christmas. - Jean, Ypsilanti, MI

Official reason the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Lexington, KY gave for rejecting a Peace Calendar sent to anti-imperialist political prisoner Susan Rosenberg: "...inciting disorderly conduct in the security of the institution."

I am overwhelmed - I have just discovered your catalog..... Thank you for reflecting my visions back to me and providing substance. -Beverly, Cleveland Heights, OH

As I turn my Peace Calendar to May, I am once again swept away by the tremendous beauty and power of this wonderful collection of art, propaganda, history, struggle and inspiration. I am a political prisoner and a grand jury resister. Today was a long day for me and leafing through the calendar was like a kiss and a back massage. -Julie, Lexington, KY (This calendar got through "security!")

General Smedley Butler's post card is the most powerful article you have! He was in the 1st World War. I was a Marine in the 2nd World War. I give them out to people freely. Yesterday I gave out some 15 to people in my barbershop. All of them were grateful and all of them agreed 100% that "War Is A Racket." Carpe Diem. -Carl, Eugene, OR

Thank you very much for your thoughtful & comprehensive catalog. I appreciate your including my statement about our 9-11 response on a poster. Please stay in touch! -Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Oakland, CA

Syracuse Cultural Workers is a model organization, promoting the rights and works of many repressed minorities. This world is fortunate to have organizations such as yours. - Kerry, Guilford Native American Association, Greensboro, NC

I thought the Peace Calendar was marvelous. Imaginative, informative, even uplifting. I hope it will become a regular event. -Noam Chomsky, Cambridge, MA

I'm a postal worker and while sorting the mail came across your catalog - being an honest one - I did not pilfer it. Could you please send me a copy of your catalog? -Gail, Ann Arbor, MI

I am proud to make a contribution to such an important and inspiring, creative organization. I only wish I could afford more than $100 but even that is extending myself right now. I just want to thank you for your efforts to make our world a better place and to give me the opportunity to join your efforts!! I adore SCW!! -Scott, Lancaster, PA

In light of all the grim news, receiving your beautiful, intriguing catalog in today’s mail was a patch of blue in an otherwise depressingly grey political sky! Straightaway, I sent word of SCW to dozens of likeminded friends. I only wish your catalog had been around when I was a girl! -Jo, Blaine, WA

Keep on doing what you're doing. It's needed more than you know! -Rep. Vincent Hughes, Member, House of Representatives, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

You are doing beautiful work and it deserves to be widely known. -Dennis, University of Pittsburgh Department of Black Community Education Research & Development
