Help! Save In Other Words Bookstore

The last non-profit feminist bookstore in the country, In Other Words is also facing the devastating possibility of closing its doors due to the harsh economic situation. While losing another local bookstore would be heartbreaking, In Other Words does more than sell books. It provides a place for community events, resources for networking and connections, and is home to voices of change. Please read the call for help from the bookstore's program director:

Dear friends,

In Other Words, like so many of our fellow bookstores, has fallen upon incredibly hard financial times. With the decline in our current economy, we have experienced severely decreased revenue. If we are unable to raise $11,000 by the end of December, In Other Words will have to close its doors.
We desperately need your help. We are confident that if everyone who cares about In Other Words makes a contribution, large or small, we will meet our goal. Please give as generously as you can to save the last remaining non-profit, feminist bookstore in the country: the place where so many Portland artists, activists, organizers, readers, writers, political thinkers, musicians and poets find their voice, their power, their community, and their political home.
Our community cannot afford to lose In Other Words, please help us save her!
You can make your tax-deductible donations on the In Other Words secure website, or by stopping into the store (8 NE Killingsworth).

Sincerely,The Board, Staff and Volunteers of In Other Words
