Tom Jefferson  Munhall, PA
I am a photojournalist with a focus on social justice and climate change. For the past year I have been filming a documentary which follows average people through their fight to end extreme energy extraction and address climate change. My plan for the completed film, which will be 90 min., is to distribute the movie to anyone who needs it free of charge. The point is to bring awareness to THE WAY WE LIVE and the way people fight against big corporations that put our health and safety  at risk. This has become a full time job  with no income. I will be spending the next six weeks editing the final cut set to be released on Jan 1, 2016. The project is very labor entensive, 10 to 15 hours per day,  and I have found myself falling deeper in debt,, In order to complete THE WAY WE LIVE I am graciously requesting  your assistance in helping keep me afloat and free of debt stress while working on the most important work that I have ever done. I will be forever grateful to whoever finds themselves in a position to help bring this vital message to the world.

I am so upset the photojournalist, Tom Jefferson, was targeted w/racist remarks in this protest video.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrY1XltlRWg hoping that the media attention of the racism will work to the good of getting the media attention to this worthy project of Tom's.

I really don't think his message was to reveal the racist way of that man in Mars but it did reveal the work that Tom Jefferson is doing and I support his message. Thank you Tom,

I just watched the video of that white trash POS insulting you while you were filming and short of finding him and punching him in the throat, I figured this is the next best thing. Thank you and keep fighting the good fight.
