Carol "The Personal is Political" Hanisch - You have our very great thanks. We will publicly thank you on the website, and each month we will mail you a personal note, either from one of our instructors or from one of our students. When we can, this will include things like writing from the class, artwork, or poetry. This also roughly amounts to giving each of our instructors $1 per class, if you're into that sort of thing.

Antonio "Prison Notebooks" Gramsci - For people especially interested in our research production, at this level we will make available to you working papers and rough drafts of any scholarly work that instructors create that is relevant to our program. Please note that we cannot guarantee that there will be new work available every month; you are still supporting a month of classes directly, not the writing you receive.

Amilcar "The People are Not Fighting for Ideas" Cabral - We are incredibly thankful and surprised. At this level, we know you're not in it for the patron rewards, but you can have lunch with us up to once a week, on us, and participate in any planning calls or meetings that you are interested in. We will also be happy to work with you to make one of our instructors available to speak to your class, civic group, etc. (you will be responsible for travel costs outside reasonable driving distance, if necessary). Oh, and we will thank you on the website and send you personal notes.
