An Appeal from Noam Chomsky: Support Radical Writing and Publishing
In a time when money and power are concentrated into ever-fewer hands, the Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) stands out. For two decades, the IAS has been providing grants to radical organizers and thinkers, allowing them to take time to reflect and write about their experiences in struggles for social transformation.
In addition to financial support, the IAS offers editorial assistance to the writers they work with – those who receive grants, those writing books to be jointly published by the IAS and AK Press, and those who contribute to the IAS’ annual journal, Perspectives on Anarchist Theory. Such assistance is especially vital for the support of new writers, helping them develop the skills and confidence necessary to craft their words and express their ideas clearly.
Although IAS members donate their time to this project, they need to raise thousands of dollars each year to award grants and continue publishing. The IAS has done this work for twenty years, and plans to continue far into the future. But they can’t do that without your help.
I’m asking that you give the IAS a generous one-time, tax-deductible donation or sign up to give monthly. Please help with this vital effort to build much-needed radical intellectual infrastructure for our movements.
