'In the current time and land we are living in activism is really heating up. You may be asking yourself "How can I help?" Since November the number of events we have put on has spiked. You can help us keep spaces for the community to recharge and step into the work. We know that a little effort made by many produces results that are more than the sum of their parts. We are asking you to consider donating a $25.00 (of course we will not turn down larger sums) to the Davis Phoenix Coalition (DPC). We hope that the request for a sum that will not negatively impact most, will yield enough donations to positively impact the whole community and help us ensure that we still have a bright future ahead of us.'
