Thanks to the Pellowe Talk Partners
It's the mums and dads, professionals, workers, volunteers and students - concerned citizens like you chipping in each month who make Pellowe Talk and other activities of the Church And State ministry possible to keep going. With partners like you (and no corporate sponsors) the outrage industry doesn't know who to boycott in attempts to silence dissent and debate!
Would you like to help?
We know this just isn't possible alone. Why not consider generously supporting Pellowe Talk with a one off donation today or better yet, become a partner for $5, $10 or $20 per month.
Thank you for being part of the resistance & renewal.
