Help SCW Sustain the Resistance



For over 40 years, Syracuse Cultural Workers has engaged art and culture to transform the larger political tides of our country. We were born during the resistance to a renewed Cold War, to Reaganomics and related right-wing policies. Growing out the Syracuse Peace Council, we took on the mission to provide critical resources for grassroots movements.

We weathered slow sales through the Clinton years and then grew massively as part of the burgeoning anti-war movement during the Bush era. We almost went under during the recession which coincided with Obama's election, and faced slow sales throughout his presidency (as many people mistakenly thought, perhaps we could take a break). The horrors of Trump's reign reignited social movements putting wind under our sails.

With Biden's election, many people who were exhausted from constant struggle have stepped back from movement work and it shows in our slumping sales.

We know that there are millions of people throughout the country – including in your community – who have yet to find us.
