THANKFUL: Author Merlin Chowkwanyun has graciously dedicated all proceeds from his new book All Health Politics Is Local: Community Battles for Medical Care and Environmental Health to the AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Fund.

“I am most proud of something that has nothing to do with the book's content: all residuals and speaking fees from it will go directly to the AFA's Disaster Relief Fund, and I am sending my first one today,” writes Chowkwanyun. “My hope is students see that in the Acknowledgements and look up the work that people like [AFA-CWA] President Sara Nelson and other fighters in the labor movement are doing on behalf of all of us in this hellish time. I met Pres. Nelson a few years ago when she came to speak at Columbia and gave one of the most brilliant speeches I have ever heard in my life, and I most remember how she treated me and everyone as equals, even though she knew a hundred times more than any of us about political organizing.”
