Dear Peoples Center Friends,

Now more than ever we ask you to invest in our future with an end-of-year gift to the New Haven Peoples Center.

The Peoples Center's 80th year has been a big one. Phase two of our restoration project was completed even as we participated in the growing resistance and organizing in our country for democratic rights, equality and peace.

The Peoples Center organized a bus to the Hartford Women's March in January, held Resistance Thursdays potlucks through the summer, sponsored a film series in the fall, and participated in public hearings and actions for many issues including immigrant rights, health care and peace.

Unions, Dreamers, educators and neighborhood groups all filled the building with meetings and events. New Elm City Dream, Free 2 Spit, the Peace Council, People's World and Unidad Latina en Accion continued to keep the building in full use.

The Peoples Center relies on the generous contributions of those who use and appreciate this vibrant, all-volunteer center for social, cultural and educational organizing.

The Peoples Center has invested its commitment and vision to countless movements and causes. Your gift to the Peoples Center restoration fund is an investment in return to this precious resource in our community. We depend solely on the contributions of friends who share our ideals.

We hope you consider an end of year gift to this important progressive institution.

Contributions are tax deductible and can be made to PERA and mailed to 37 Howe Street, New Haven Connecticut 06511.

In solidarity,

Alfred L Marder, President
William P Morico , Treasurer
Joelle Fishman, Secretary and Coordinator
Harold Person, Building Manager
