[haw-info] asking for donations for the Historians Against the War conference
To members and friends of Historians Against the War,
We're writing to ask for financial help for our upcoming national conference "The New Faces of War" to be held April 5-7 in Baltimore.
Planning for the conference is going well, with an impressive array of speakers and panels (see http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/conf2013). Building on the success of our previous national conferences in2006 in Austin and 2008 in Atlanta. the conference will give antiwar historians and activists a chance to take stock of what is new and what is old in the war making of the early twenty-first century.
Unfortunately, our logistical costs are higher than we had initially anticipated. With registration fees set deliberately low, we hope to balance the conference budget through donations, multiplied by a matching gift. Any donation of any amount will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to a total of $1,000.
Please consider helping with a donation of any size. Donations can be made in either of two ways: (a) by check mailed to our treasurer, Van Gosse, at the History Department, Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, PA 17604; or (b) payment online at http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/donations.html. In the interest of truth-in-soliciting, donations to HAW are not tax-deductible.
Many thanks for any help.
Jim O'Brien and Marc Becker
Co-chairs of Historians Against the War
