April Fundraising Drive Now In Overtime!

Dear Supporters of the Center for a Stateless Society,

I’ll be brief. The fundraiser to pay the Center’s April expenses was due to have ended today, but I’ve had to extend the deadline to May 9th. ChipIn currently shows we’ve only raised $650 of our goal of $1380. Things aren’t quite that bad because some donations don’t come in through ChipIn and don’t show up there. We’re still roughly $400 away from being able to pay our folks what they’re due, though.

Can we raise $400 more in 4 days or slightly less? I think so. Less than 25 people have donated so far and they’ve gotten us to this point. This message will be seen by several hundred more people. If only one tenth of the recipients gave $10 each, we would greatly exceed our goal.

Please support our work. You can donate using the ChipIn widget on any page of our web site.

Brad Spangler,
Director, Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS)

Volunteer Placement Update

After our recent call for volunteers, the following people have been selected for the first tier of placements:

C4SS: Personnel Specialist — Kirsten Tynan
C4SS: Development Specialist and Social Media Specialist— Mariana Evica
BlackVanguard.Net: Program Manager
— Chris Nowicki
BlackVanguard.Net: Project Coordinator (1 of 3) — James Tuttle

As we gradually gear up our operations and prepare to launch some exciting initiatives, we’re going to work through placing people in the second tier of volunteer slots mentioned. Please bear with us while we go through that process of recruitment and sorting through details of job roles. Meanwhile, you can find an updated list of volunteer slots available on our new volunteer opportunities page.

Several people have asked what BlackVanguard.net is going to be. I can tell you it’s going to be a web platform for building local activist groups, fundraising and C4SS supporter participation.
