February Monthly Update on ForaTV
We are also building another website and project around the concept of Democracy at Work. We will be announcing that to all of you within a few weeks. That project aims to generate, inform, advise, and sustain democratically reorganized enterprises in partnerships with democratically organized communities. We seek to encourage, support and inform a social movement around a campaign for economic democracy.
As our reach and range of activities mount, our costs do too. We are approaching foundations for grants, but until we obtain sufficient outside funding we need also to ask some help from our viewers.
We reached out to ForaTV because their site’s terrific lectures reach many thousands. Our plan is to charge for one piece of content each month to enable us to offer more free content. Attendees at my live Monthly Economic Updates have always paid fees (100% go to the Brecht Forum in New York that hosts them).
We are also excited about the opportunity of working with ForaTV as it brings these concepts and this education to more people than visitors to my website.
We understand that you may be disappointed that the Monthly Economic Update is not free during this month’s test. Please email Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments and/or if you would like a coupon code to view February’s Monthly Economic Update on ForaTV without charge.
