Join Us in Denver on Sunday

David Rovics and Other Special Guests to Appear at Benefit for The Fund for Authentic Journalism

By Al Giordano
Publisher, Narco News

August 19, 2008

In recent years, we’ve hosted events in New York, Los Angeles and Seattle to benefit The Fund for Authentic Journalism, the nonprofit organization that supports the work of Narco News.

On Sunday, we’ll be gathering in Denver, Colorado. Please join us there or support the event from wherever you are.

Sunday’s event will feature some special (and surprise) guests, including topical singer-songwriter David Rovics, who combines authentic journalism and community organizing… with a guitar!

Suddenly, with more daily readers than ever before, the Narco News website urgently needs to expand its server capacity. Your donation today will make it possible for us to receive all the new traffic without crashing the site so that longtime readers can continue to receive (and in many cases, learn about) authentic journalism for free.

In addition raising the funds that are necessary to keep your online newspaper publishing from across international borders, events like the upcoming one in Denver make it possible for readers and journalists of Narco News to meet each other in person, make lasting friendships and alliances.

If you’re going to be in or near Denver on Sunday, do not miss our garden party at the home of Keith Howard:

Sunday, August 24
3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
4303 Umatilla Street
Denver, Colorado

And if you can’t be in Denver on Sunday, please participate by making a contribution to continue this important work. If you can do so, right now, please do so online via:


Or you can mail your contribution to:

The Fund for Authentic Journalism
PO Box 241
Natick, MA 01760

Please join the event’s sponsors, including Jamaica Kincaid, Ann Cantelow, Tonya Hennessey, Paul Findlay, Christi Demuth, Steven Schlang, Dan Goldman, Klaus Hjorting, Erin Rosa, and The Angelica Foundation (the very first supporter, back in 2000, of Narco News’ work, whose director, Jim Gollin, will offer a special toast at the Denver event) by making a contribution of $100 or more to The Fund for Authentic Journalism.

If you have friends or family in Denver, your $50 contribution can be applied to their attendance at the garden party (just make sure to let us know, via email to narconews@gmail.com who’ll be representing you there).

There will be food and drink and good conversation as well as some surprise guests. And we’ll raise much needed funds to keep breaking the information blockade with investigative news stories like Kristin Bricker’s exposé last month of the US company that provides torture training to Mexican police, Bill Conroy’s groundbreaking reports of official drug war corruption from the US-Mexico border to Colombia, and our recent foray into reporting north of the border with The Field, the blog covering the US presidential campaign that has become a must-read for political reporters and news junkies everywhere.

So if you haven’t done so already, please RSVP to attend the must-not-be-missed party on this Sunday afternoon in Denver, or, from afar, to sponsor or make a contribution of any size to continue reading authentic journalism from below that is not beholden to advertisers or special interests. The Fund for Authentic Journalism is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, which means your contributions are tax deductible, too.

Again, you can reserve your attendance or support the event online, at:


Or you can mail a donation to:

The Fund for Authentic Journalism
PO Box 241
Natick, MA 01760

See you on Sunday in Denver. And we’ll continue seeing you every day through our reporting via www.narconews.com.

From somewhere in a country called América,
