Indiegogo Ho!

Hello Friends,

We'll keep this brief, but we wanted to share what's going on with us. We know it's been awhile since we've written.

Our main news to report is that this year, 2016, is the year for distribution. This year we will definitely release A Place to Stand digitally, on DVD and for educational use. (phew - about time, right?)

In this effort, what's most important for us is the educational work - getting the film to schools, jails and to at-risk youth - but doing that is as labor-intensive as making the movie itself. So in just over a week, we'll be launching a month-long Indiegogo campaign to make our educational work successful. It will allow us to take this journey to a satisfying and successful close.

We are looking for allies to help support this effort - to join our team, spread the word, and help us reach the audiences we want to reach. Are you available and interested? You'd be working with us, the film team, directly to make our campaign a success.

If you're interested, please respond to this message or email us at info@aplacetostandmovie.com.

Thanks!

With Gratitude,
The A Place to Stand Team
