About this project
Just a few years ago (2010), Richmond, CA, was ranked the 3rd most dangerous city in the United States. Men, women, children and even the elderly were targeted. Our hope is that our documentary will bring awareness to all of the senseless killings in Richmond, CA, and hope people will take a stand to take the city back from the streets that have stolen so many lives and left so many families in complete devastation.
We want viewers to hear and understand what these heartbroken families have to say, and we want them to be able to see the pain on their faces. Their loved ones were taken away from them and they want justice and the senseless violence in Richmond to end. With your backing, you will not only be making a vital contribution to our direct finishing costs, you will be making a powerful statement that films like ours are wanted and needed in places like Richmond. As a backer, you will have first-look access to our project and of course, the opportunity to see the film first.
Our film takes on an urgent social issue – but from a very intimate perspective. There are no outside experts – the families of those killed in Richmond, CA, tell the story themselves.
We want to put together a film that will bring awareness to the violence and convince people in the community to not be afraid to speak out, whether it is expressing their feelings or coming forth with key information to solve an open case. There is power in numbers and unity is needed in places like Richmond. We must come together, stick together, and bring awareness.

Risks and challenges
When taking on an independent film, there are many risks:
ANXIETY - Will we work long days and nights? Yes. We get angry; We worry; We disagree; but we will NOT give up.
COMPLETION - Will we be able to fund the project? Will we EVER finish? This is precisely where you come in, Kind Backer. With your help - we'll finish!
REACHING OUR AUDIENCE - How can we make sure our film reaches our audience, especially young people and families in small towns across America? We have a plan for a low-cost distribution - and we'd love your help spreading the word!
MAKING A DIFFERENCE - The ultimate challenge is to make a film that makes a difference, that raises awareness, that starts a conversation, and that has measurable impact. We are gearing up to find ways to have the film used by advocates and change-makers - and we are reaching out to you!
While we risk our lives filming in Richmond, CA, we challenge you to help and support us. Spread the word to your friends and family about our film and help us bring awareness to ending the violence not only in Richmond, but everywhere!
