  1. Find partners to co-sponsor and help organize and build your performance. Voices can be an excellent tool for bringing people together to work for a common cause. Consider approaching radio stations, independent media outlets, veterans’ groups, campus groups, community organizations, unions, local theatres, school cultural activities boards, and others for cosponsorship and financial support.
  2. Chose your beneficiaries. We encourage you to consider giving all of the money you raise to Voices to support other performances of Voices and the use of our materials in schools. We also partner every year with other organizations doing important work related to our mission. To read about our partners, read here. We have also tried to make it as easy as possible to donate part of the proceeds from your event to these important organizations. If you would like to add another nonprofit organization as a beneficiary, to receive part of the funds from your event, please click here.
  3. Find a local bookstore to sell books and DVDs (one good option is to find a store throughIndieBound), or order books directly at an organizational discount. The key titles to carry are Voices of a People’s History of the United States, updated edition, which you can order fromSeven Stories Press and A People’s History of the United States, which you can order fromHarper Collins
