I'd reconsider contributing content to WMF projects if WMF became a
partisan on issues outside its basic remit.

Regarding https://twitter.com/SuePGardner/status/998302792946102273

I propose that the Executive Director resume regular periodic
correspondence with donors on other ways they can support the
movement, beyond copyright and internet law advocacy that the
Foundation traditionally supports directly and indirectly. In
particular, I propose that the Executive Director ask donors to
support other organizations which are working for free college,[1-4]
single payer universal health care,[5] shorter work weeks,[6-7]
payroll subsidies,[8] and two-bracket taxation.[9]

I believe all of these goals are favored by wikimedians, for
wikimedians, I predict at around 80% for the least popular. If there
is any question I ask that a statistically robust and significant
survey of the question among community and staff be conducted with the
urgency commensurate that work in these areas deserves.

Best regards,
Jim Salsman
