|Happy Friday friends!
We want to thank all of you who came out for the NACLA 2.0 Happy Hour on Wednesday to celebrate and support our Indiegogo campaign to expand NACLA's digital reach. We had so much fun and your contributions helped move our campaign forward over $2,000!
And we have more great news: Another generous donor is matching every dollar donated up to $5,000!
With just 9 days left in the campaign, we still have a long way to go to ensure that we can take our progressive reporting on the Americas to new digital platforms, but with this matching campaign, we are confident that you can help us get there.
Will you support independent journalism today?
Join the campaign now and every dollar you donate will be doubled! Whether you can give $10, $100, or $1,000, your support will help move NACLA forward in today's digital landscape, giving more people access to the news and analysis on Latin America that you value.
Plus, we've got a new perk.
For $35, you'll get a digital subscription, thanks in our magazine, and a canvas tote featuring artwork by Rini Templeton (pictured at right).
