Help Take Trump Down With This Short Movie

Are you angry that Trump is going to walk? 

Help us do something about it. 

Trump and his minions are destroying this country. Don’t be one of those who someday confess they did nothing to stand in his way.

Take action. With us. We have a novel idea. And it will take pennies not millions.

We are going to take a page out of Trump’s playbook and turn it on him. He made 2016 so ugly that enough swing-state Democrats stayed home out of disgust, handing him the keys to the White House.

We are going to do the same to him. We shall make it easier for suburban women to stay home on Election Day 2020.

How? 

Not politics. The Congressional Democrats tried that and failed. They failed to have Trump removed from office through impeachment. They failed because they used high-minded reason and political ideals against a crass, crude and bombastic showman.

The lesson learned from their failure is clear: Only theatre can take down a showman.

We are going to create a series of short (ie 2 minutes or less) films made to go viral on social media throughout this year. The films will show us what America will look like under four more years of Trump.

This first film, "He Touched Me!" shows how his support for Evangelicals is imprisoning our women and our girls in a new cage of powerlessness over their bodies. You can read the script here as well as get more details about our project. 

Many of the resources needed to create this small budget film have already been recruited including the script, camera, editing software and hardware, and stipends for the Executive Producer, Director, and star. Nevertheless, we still need $1,200 for top quality lighting and sound equipment, location rental, and stipends for the remaining cast and crew.

Here's a chance to take back the America that we know and love with a simple $20 donation. If you can't do $20, do $10. Help us take back America from Trump and his minions. Together we can do it! Your donation means so much to us, making it possible to create this film. We are eager to use our skills to make a difference, and you can make help make that possible for us. And then you, too, can say you took action to take Donald Trump down! We are #StrongerTogether!

We want to raise this money by Valentine's Day, 2020.
