Help JW's Free Themselves from the Religion

Donation protected
As you may know, if you're here on this page, leaving the Jehovah's Witnesses can be nearly impossible.

For those born in the religion, deciding to leave means being abandoned by everyone and everything we ever knew.

For many, they simply cannot leave because their entire lives, marriages, children and jobs are entangled with religion. So they must live a double life, with the constant fear that their true thoughts and feelings might become exposed to other Jehovah's Witnesses.

Jehovah's Witnesses are not permitted to maintain friendships or relationships with none witnesses. They are also not allowed to consume any media or news that speaks negatively about the religion. Members live under the constant threat of being expelled from the religion at any time and completely cut off from their friends and family.

This experience is entirely isolating, and overcoming it can feel impossible to overcome. Thousands end up taking their own lives, and tens of thousands more are never able to find their place in the world community that they were raised to be separate from.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the abuses current and former Jehovah's Witnesses endure.

We won't delve into that further, but the Australian News Program 4 Corners has created a 45-minute special entitled: Escaping Jehovah's Witnesses: Inside the dangerous world of a brutal religion, which is linked at the bottom of the page.

So what can we do about it?

We've been away from the religion for a few years now and wanted to come up with a way to reach people stuck in the religion with the message that there is life outside of JW if they want it. We'd also like to educate the public on the oppressive tactics of the Jehovah's Witness organization.

However, we still live in fear of being harassed by current Jehovah's Witnesses, so it's not as though I can take to the streets or knock on doors (like they do so freely). We feel like a lot of people are in the same boat.

So we've created a series of educational stickers. These stickers can be discreetly placed in private spaces, like bathroom stalls, where oppressed Jehovah's Witnesses can view them without fear of being discovered by other Witnesses and excommunicated.

We've self-financed an initial print run of 2000. I'm distributing these stickers free-of-charge to anyone who requests them.

Whatever funds We collect will go 100% toward printing and shipping costs.

If you'd like to help distribute stickers, please fill out this webform.

Thank you!
