Building Fundraising Appeal
Funds needed to repair the roof
August 28, 2017
Over the years you have perhaps donated to one or another progressive appeal for activities in the southeast Michigan area. Most of these actions have used the building at 5920 Second Avenue for meetings, sign making, phone banking, etc. The building has become an organizing center for much of the progressive movement. Just in the past year it has been used as a center to publicize and raise funds for political prisoner Reverend Edward Pinkney; to mobilize opposition to Trump and the Pentagon’s wars and threats against Syria, Venezuela and north Korea; it is the location of the founding (and meetings) of the antifascist Michigan Peoples Defense Network (MPDN); it is the center of organizing against the annual waves of tax foreclosures. And that is only a fraction of what goes on under the roof of 5920 Second Avenue.
So when the roof is leaking it creates a problem for all the activists who are trying to make a difference. We cannot avoid it any longer. Several months ago we had 1/3 of the roof professionally repaired and raised the funds for that first step. But we must now raise $4,200 by October to have the final 2/3 of the project finished before winter. We need your help.
Please make a check out to Moratorium NOW Coalition and send it to 5920 Second Ave., Detroit MI 48202. Write on the check “roof repair.” Or youif you prefer to donate online, click here.
Thank you for any help you can give.
