We have two special requests for our local supporters. First, our computers were all seized. Individual activists, and the AWC office, could more easily continue our work with the use of decent, wireless-capable computers. If you have a computer you can donate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Second, the computers seized at the AWC office contained our mailing list, and we no longer have your addresses or phone numbers. Include that in your future emails, and we'll start rebuilding our database. Thank you!
