storeRevolution Books needs your support right now

The first ten months of Revolution Books in Harlem have been incredible. The new bookstore has become the site of countless eye-opening talks and discussions, author programs, deep engagement with the biggest questions facing humanity. RB is fulfilling its unique mission as the place where people come to find the books and engagement with why the world is the horror it is and how it can be radically changed through revolution.

The reality is that Revolution Books survives only with the support of people. The RB Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign raised over $25,000 this past August—a great victory with over 300 of you donating. The campaign showed the tremendous potential of a bookstore with revolution and communism at its core to take hold and gain financial support.

A warm thanks to all. As promised, work has begun on 1) ordering many new books, 2) installing air-conditioning, 3) building a stage, 4) producing proper signage for the front window. Raising the $25,000 was part of a larger plan this fall to a) raise $40,000 and b) double our sales and double our monthly sustainers.

We are counting on you continuing to donate generously (left column below), and become monthly sustainers (right column below). This is how RB will become financially solvent, able to impact the world on a whole other scale in these times of unprecedented peril and opportunity for humanity.

For those who wish to make tax-deductible donations, we are happy to announce the new Revolution Books Educational Fund, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that sponsors the educational programming at RB. Please go here to contribute to RBEF.
