THE STORY:

Hello, friends. Noah and I are running a 5k on October 23rd to raise awareness for the San Antonio 4. The San Antonio 4 is the media shorthand for Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez, who were wrongfully convicted in Texas and spent over a decade in prison for a crime that never took place. I had an opportunity to meet them in person and to see "Southwest of Salem", a documentary about their story, which was heartbreaking. My goal with this run and fundraiser is to encourage more people to see the film. My ask is that you either provide financial support to marketing and distribution of the film, or watch the film yourself, or both. It is airing on October 15 on DISCOVERY ID 8PM/7PM CT. Thank you for your consideration and support, Scott and Noah Here is a bit more information about the film: SOUTHWEST OF SALEM: THE STORY OF THE SAN ANTONIO FOUR excavates the nightmarish persecution of Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez — four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of allegedly gang raping two little girls. This bizarre case is the first to be adjudicated under momentous new legislation: for the first time in U.S. history, wrongfully convicted innocents can challenge convictions based on debunked scientific evidence called ‘Junk Science'. The film also unravels the sinister interplay of mythology, homophobia, and prosecutorial fervor which led to this modern day witch hunt. www.southwestofsalem.com
