Double your impact!
Right now, your gift (up to $11,000) will be matched dollar for dollar!
I think that each of us should try to do our part to show concrete support for the ANSWER Coalition, which accomplishes so much based on devotion and hard work.
As a teacher of children with disabilities, I am outraged that the government will spend nearly $1 trillion of our tax dollars next year for war and weapons while desperately needed funding is cut from education.

ANSWER supporter matching donations dollar for dollar
Dear supporter of the ANSWER Coalition,
We're not there yet. We still need to raise $4,500 to be able to meet the matching grant offer of $11,000 made by anti-war activist Judi Cheng.
With 2011 just around the corner, this is a perfect opportunity to make an end-of-year, tax-deductible donation to the ANSWER Coalition—and your gift will be matched dollar for dollar!
Activist and ANSWER Coalition supporter Judi Cheng has offered to match donations to the ANSWER Coalition up to $11,000. In order to be matched, your tax-deductible donation must be received by Dec. 31.
ANSWER has called for actions across the country to take place on March 19 on the occasion of the 8th anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. A number of expenses must be paid for to get this effort off the ground. Your help is needed today!
Judi Cheng received this money as an award from a decade-long lawsuit filed by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) on behalf of herself and nearly 700 other people who were illegally arrested on April 15, 2000, and then held in brutal and harsh conditions.
Judi said these words:
I’ve thought a lot about what I should do with this settlement because I want to make a difference, just as I intended that day when I was falsely arrested and taken off the street for protesting.
I believe we all owe a debt to the ANSWER Coalition and its hundreds of volunteers who have worked tirelessly for peace and justice for so many years. I support the ANSWER Coalition because it organizes to oppose wars and military occupations that serve only the geo-strategic aims of imperialism
Our movement depends on your generosity. Your donation will help us continue our work and make the March 19 mobilizations a success. Please take a moment to make a tax-deductible donation to ANSWER Coalition before the new year.
National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition
