Dues are $40/year (or $25/year for students, retirees, or unemployed).
2. The HAW Steering Committee has adopted the following statement regarding the boycott of the January 2010 AHA convention in San Diego:
"In view of the boycott called by some GLBT organizations and UNITE HERE against the Manchester Hyatt in San Diego, the main convention hotel of the January 2010 AHA convention, the HAW Steering Committee resolves to hold any HAW events in other locations. The Steering Committee also urges individual HAW members and supporters who plan to attend the convention to book rooms in other hotels rather than at the Hyatt and, in general, avoid spending money at the Hyatt."
3. Filmmaker Robert Greenwald's remarkable Rethink Afghanistan project (http://rethinkafghanistan.com) now includes six separate videos of 11 to 14 minutes each, which can be viewed on-line for free. A DVD with all the videos included will be available as of October 5; ordering information, as well as links to the individual videos, is on the web site.
