We hate Valentine’s day. We also hate capitalism and money. But we love what we do, and the community we do it with. We need money to support our free-to-use community center, our projects, and our radical bookshop. So this Valentine’s day, why not make a donation to your favorite subversive sweethearts?
Donate Online Here! You can also send us checks or come by in person to the shop at 101 Lloyd St., Carrboro, NC 27510.
For a donation of any amount that we get by February 15, we’ll send you a thank you valentine!
For the first 10 donations of more than $50 we get by February 15, we’ll also send you one of our favorite calendars as a special present!

Matthew McCain and Dennis McMurray were beloved fathers living in Durham, NC. They are just two examples of community members who have died due to medical neglect while locked up at the Durham County Jail. At least three people have died while in custody at the Durham County Jail in the last year. On top of that the Durham County Jail tried to cover up these deaths and purposefully ignored and misled Matthew and Dennis’s family members when they sought more information. On Saturday we say their names and demand an end to deaths at the Durham County Jail along with a full community led, independent investigation of the Jail. #JusticeforMatthew #JusticeforDennis #WeBelievePrisoners
