Thanks People’s Life Fund!

On April 15, the People’s Life Fund gave us a grant of $2500 to support UV, including our mailing to over 2300 incarcerated subscribers. This is about one quarter of our annual budget, the rest of it is made up from donations mostly from people in LAGAI.

The PLF is a project of the Northern California War Tax Resistance, which provides information and support for conscientious war tax resisters in Northern California. The PLF is one of over 50 alternative funds in the U.S. where war tax resisters deposit money they don’t pay to the federal government in taxes. Each year the PLF gives grants of up to $2500 to progressive and service organizations. Organizations cannot get grants two years in a row. According to the PLF website: “By creating alternative funds, we move a step beyond resistance. Through our actions, we determine the priorities for the use of our tax dollars. And by this determination, we not only empower ourselves, but we also provide critical funds for human services that the government is not adequately supplying.”
