We're proud to announce today that award-winning journalist Daniel J. Willis will be working with The Tolerance Project, consulting with public records and analysis. Willis is a pioneering data journalist for the fifth-largest daily paper in the United States. He has won awards for several investigative projects exposing government corruption, and for his on-the-ground reporting of the Occupy Oakland protests and riots.
Daniel was the only major media representative who remained in the trenches when Occupy Oakland turned into a riot, and his later reporting highlighted the city government's response to the Occupy protests, misstep by misstep.
For The Tolerance Project, this means big things are ahead. Willis' skill with public records should allow us to uncover new information about the history of Westboro Baptist Church, and with his help we'll be able to thoroughly investigate Westboro Baptist and its deleterious effect on Topeka.
Again, we require your support to make any of this happen. For those who have already backed our project, thank you. For everyone else, even if you don't want to pre-order the DVD, contributions of $5 or $10 can add up quickly if you ask your friends to do the same. And if your financial situation doesn't allow for that, you can still help by sharing our page on Facebook and Twitter.
Together we can make a difference.
