Dear Brecht Forum Supporter –

The Political Temperature is RISING!  Are you ready for the long, hot  
summer? With just $25, the Brecht Forum will be!

As a friend and supporter, you know the Brecht Forum has taken a  
great leap forward by moving to a new, larger home. Since last  
summer, you and thousands of others have found your way to our new  
home and filled up the political classes, discussions, exhibits, and  
performances.  And thanks to tireless work by many volunteers who  
helped renovate, you have turned the space into one of our  
community's most beautiful resources.

But the Brecht Forum has reached a critical moment.  We have to make  
the space ready for summer!

To Donate- Go To: < 

We need $100,000 to cap the capital campaign.

Then, we can install new, secure windows and doors, and build a  
proper accessible entranceway.  Most important, it will cover the  
cost of much-needed air conditioning -- so we can all stay cool, as  
things heat up over the summer.

If you will contribute just $25, we can install the air conditioning  
and finish the job.

The season is already heating up –and we don’t mean just the  
weather.  There is a lot in store --

     * Climate Change: Making the Connections-- the Climate Crisis  
Coalition will lead a discussion on devastating problem of global  
warming and other catastrophes such as Katrina.
     * Neues Kabarett is presenting its 2nd Annual Musician's Poetry  
     * Dialectical biologist Richard Levins is offering a weekend  
seminar on Complexity, Chaos & Butterflies, to examine the big  
failures of recent science and its constriction by politics and  
     * Democracy for All: Restoring Immigrant Voting Rights in the  
U.S. book party with author Ron Hayduk joined by Charles Barron, Aziz  
Huq Bryan Pu-Folks and Cheryl Wertz.
     * The Black Panthers@40 will be three evenings on the legacy and  
ongoing impact of the Black Panther Party.
     * Action Wednesdays, launched this Spring for anti-war planning,  
is developing a major teach-in on Iran.

Your strong support has gotten us here.   Already, hundreds of  
dedicated activists have contributed more than $200,000 to get us  
moved and settled on the west side. Now, all we need is $100,000 to  
finish the job.

All we ask is $25.  Will you help?  Of course, you can send us less  
or more -  $10, $15, $50 or $100.  This is all we need, and you’ll  
have a cool place to come for critical thinking on all the hot issues.

Thanks for your commitment. Together, we’ll keep the heat on all summer!
