Issue #7 of The Activist Guide has been completed and placed in the mail. It has been distributed by e-mail to those who have requested subscription to the special mailing list used only for this newsletter. (The newsletter and rapid-response-team are kept on separate mailing lists because not everyone on the rapid-response-team wants the large files that make up the newsletter.) If you have not already received The Activist Guide by e-mail, then you are not on the mailing list. To be added to this mailing list, please send a request to [email protected]. You will receive the current issue and all subsequent issues automatically.
This issue has been posted to the newsgroup talk.politics.drugs, so you can also find it there, if you prefer. You can also download it by anonymous ftp; do an ftp to calyx.com, enter "anonymous" as the username and your e-mail address as the password; type "cd pub/DRCNet" and then type "mget guide10-95.*" to download the five files.
Lastly, it will be made available within a few days on the web, at the location http://www.drcnet.org/pubs/guide/10-95/guide10-95.html. The web version will have some pictures that were included in the printed version.
We have had a successful trial residency period in Washington DC, working out of the Drug Policy Foundation's headquarters. We have had some grant support, enabling DRCNet to be a full-time operation, but we are still financially on the edge and need continued member support to be able to continue our work into the coming year. Please consider becoming a full member ($25 for 12 hardcopy issues of The Activist Guide) or virtual member ($10/year, e-mail only). Send e-mail to [email protected] for a registration form (at the end of the info file you'll get back automatically), or just send your check to DRCNet, 4455 Connecticut Ave. NW, Suite B-500, Washington, DC 20008-2302. We can now also accept Mastercard and Visa -- just send us your credit card type, account number, expiration date and amount you wish to contribute. We don't recommend that you send this information by e-mail, because it is not a secure medium for credit card transactions. We'll accept it if you do, but suggest instead that you use mail or fax, or give us a call at (202) 362-0030.
DRCNet can now accept tax-deductible contributions. These can be made by check or money order, made payable to the Drug Policy Foundation; please note on the front of the check that the funds are to be earmarked for the DPF/DRCNet collaboration. Contributions made in this way are not applicable to basic DRCNet membership dues. Checks written out to DRCNet are not tax-deductible. With the year running to a close, please keep us in mind for your end-of-the-year charitable contributions.
