Subject: Help May First raise $5001 on 5/1

Charge our Battery! Keep us Powered and Empowered!

We need your support - Donate Today and/or Join us at our Pre-May Day Fundraising Party with the Rude Mechanical Orchestra and DJ Dusty Walker on Monday, April 30th at Alwan for the Arts!

MF/PL is leading a People's Assembly Network event at the upcoming Allied Media Conference in Detroit this summer. This will include the kickoff of our new program the People of Color Techie Training Program which aims to put technological skills, expertise and control in diverse hands. We will also sponsor a day long action session to strategize how we can build a more powerful, progressive Internet. We're trying to raise funds to help bring more organizers to these events. Power comes from participation.

We've also recently become a truly international organization, with over 100 new organizations and individuals from Mexico. Being able to facilitating travel and lodging for some of our new Mexican members to also attend the conference will not only deepen the range of debate at the workshops, but will help forge new and critical connections across borders.

Our plans are ambitious but they can't happen without your support. We rarely ask for financial help – but we believe these projects will have a powerful impact on our efforts to organize.

We have over 700 members – mostly organizations. If every member gave just $10 we would surpass our goal. Whatever you can give will make a huge difference.

Empower our efforts! Charge us up!

From all of us at May First/People Link – thank you for your support.
