Spring fund drive is here! That means we need YOU – our community – to get on the phones tonight (510-848-5732 OR 1-800-439-5732) to call in and show your support for APEX by donating whatever amount you can!  We have two AWESOME giveaways tonight:

Exclusive CD’s of the recording from Grace Lee Bogg’s special event in SF Chinatown in March 2012!  Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) and others hosted Grace for a special event in March, including poignant speeches from Grace herself, discussion with Scott Kurashige (co-author of Grace’s book ….) and Alex Tom (Executive Director of CPA), and great music & poetry performances.  On APEX tonight, hear sounds from that CD and call-in to donate and get a copy of this CD as your thank you.
