Time to raise funds to obtain distribution, do screenings/forums and get our film out there into the hands of the vast communities. Without proper distribution our film will just gather dust and that is not helping us reach our goals of change and awareness around this important issue. 

We need your support more than ever now. Could you chip in so we can submit our film to festivals, etc so we can build interest in our film. This is the first method in looking to get some distributers interested in whaT we have all accomplished together.

There are many cost associated with this effort. It includes submission fees, Cost to submit properly formatted dvds or files and other mandatory requirements for most film festivals such as movie posters, presskits and more. So that is what is facing us. That is our Task.

We do hope you will continue to support us now that we finally have a finished movie. So share this with family and friends so that we can be successful.  Hopefully we can save some lives and families from the pains of them or their loved ones being victimized and no one being held accountablle for it. Change can only happen if we work hard together to make it happen.

This is Serious.

Every day there is a new horror story that unfolds some place in this country involving a person with a disability. Little is being done to change the situation.   Police abusing or killing of a person with a disability or an unarmed person is on the rise. When will it end? We need our community to take action to end these tragedies. Our Community and our families are enduring devastating incidents of brutality. We intend to utilize this online film project and other actions to work towards making our community safer and the Police more responsive to our need.

Support our efforts in educating people to make them more aware.  We know that this effort will enable us to organize our community around the issues at public screenings and forums to bring resolution to this problem affecting us all.
