Why can't we hear the song and know more about the video?
The song and video are a package deal, which is why we're not releasing the song yet. And like all videos, we want this one to be a surprise. We hope you will trust us that each piece, on its own, will be created with all of the passion, creativity, and energy we can muster. We are here to tell a personal story, but also to relate the fact that this one story is reflective of millions of others. It is not just Jonathan's story that must be told, that of the guy who has been blessed with more good fortune -- fancy prep school, debt-free college degree, 2 years studying and working in France, steady work for 6 years, 2 master's degrees nearly completed -- than most people in the world, all despite the myriad crimes he's committed and never been charged for. His story is not unique, and the video will make that clear. We will not mince words, nor shy away from continuing to highlight the disgraceful, unjust criminal justice system that our society must tear down.
When will I receive my t-shirt?
You will receive the t-shirt in 6-8 weeks, but hopefully sooner. We are printing each shirt to order, and we have to print them in batches, all of which requires that we wait until a large number of orders are placed before we print the shirts.
What if I would like to make a donation or receive a t-shirt using cash or check?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact any of the collaborators and we will make it happen.
What can I do right now to promote the message of the project and contribute to criminal justice reform?
- Learn about the statistics and facts on the Reality page of this website.
- Tell your story, in whatever way you feel comfortable, to whomever you feel comfortable telling it to.
- Send people to this website.
- Learn about We Are All Criminals, spread the word about the amazing work they're doing, donate to the cause, and link to them on social media and via other outlets.
- Volunteer your time working in prisons and jails, supporting people when they are released from incarceration, or by communicating with people who are incarcerated in order to provide emotional support and friendship.
Where will I be able to hear the song and view the video when it is completed?
We will provide both of them on this website, free of charge.
What if I want to contribute more than the cost of the t-shirt?
Order more than 1 t-shirt. If you don't need more than 1, just let us know and we won't send the additional ones. Or order multiple shirts and give them away as gifts, especially to those friends who may be most interested in the project. Or send us an email and we'll tell you how you can contribute offline.
