One of the things I hate most about being under the umbrella of a national organization is that the national organization often fucks things up.
Until very recently, it was impossible for us to get a current membership list, so we used old lists and purged them as necessary.
Somehow, that didn't stop us from sending a fundraising letter to two people who have been dead for years, and someone who is a member, but currently in prison.
So next year, when we do this again, I should start with a disclaimer: "We apologize if you have received this letter in error. If you are deceased or incarcerated, please feel free to return it."
