BENEFITING: Stone Soup Films Endowment
As the founder of The VO1CE Project, I am hoping to raise funds to cover the costs of travel and production of a 15 minute documentary covering the extraordinary life of Mexican Labor Rights Leader, Blanca Velazquez.
Blanca was recently on a speaking tour of the US. I had the opportunity to meet her after listening to her courageous and inspiring story. She is currently in an undisclosed location in Mexico City due to threats made against her.
Blanca's Story is worth telling, sharing and re-telling--both for her and the cause she has dedicated her life to.
This story will be featured on the VO1CE Project platform (www.vo1ceproject.org). Upon production, I will look to show this doc in as many venues as possible. The VO1CE Project looks to empower global change makers with the tools and access so that their stories may be heard and supported. We are a 501c3 organization with a heavy citizen journalism focus.
