5. DONATE

We cannot succeed without your help - and without the financial resources to get things done. We accept no government grants, and have no corporate backers. In fact, those who lobby most aggressively against our work are government organizations (like law enforcement groups) and corporate interest groups (like a local chamber of commerce)
