I received the following e-mail today from Mallory of All 7 Collective Mission, a group creating a film about the New Jersey 7. The All 7 Collective Mission describes itself as “Allies of the Living Lesbian 7: A documentary-film, working group.” The group plans to distribute the film in order to spread the word and to raise funds for the incarcerated women.
Thank you so much for your support. Have you gotten negative mail from Buckle? Our site has (www.all7.org). By the way, we’re making a shirt out of your graphic – it’s so beautiful. Can we give you credit somehow? Where did the original image come from? Peace and solidarity,
I replied to let Mallory know Chloe of Women’s Space designed the image specifically for the New Jersey 7 (and I gave her Chloe’s real name, since this is Chloe’s fine work). Chloe, you rock. Thank you!
Goals and Mission Statement of All 7 Collective Mission:
To produce a short organizing piece around 15 minutes in three months with a three day shooting schedule. Ideally DVD sales and screenings can be adopted as fundraising tools by an already extant community support campaign led by FIERCE!, the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, Human Rights Watch.
We wish to operate with integrity and be 100% accountable to the convicted women, their defense team, and their families, and seek to incorporate greater community oversight of and participation in this project, conceived of by allies of the NJ7/LL7. All aspects of the production are open to involvement; community liason, story, technical, production, and post production.
Support Our Project
Any support you can lend is appreciated. You can help us by organizing with us, coming to meetings, visioning fundraising project, capturing and editing film, writing letters and petitions. The project also needs equipment! Please consider donating to us so that we can buy tapes to record our footage, stamps to mail our letters, and transportation to get us connected with the NJ4 women and their families.
Buckle having attempted to contact the women of All 7 Collective Mission is troublesome. So far he has not attempted to contact me.
