Dear friends of I-Witness Video:
Hi! We hope you’re all gearing up to come to our first ever fundraising
benefit, the I-Ball (which is happening this Thursday, December 11). It’s
going to be super fun — and we look forward to seeing you all there.
In the meanwhile, we have a request. We are collecting testimonials about
the impact of our work and we want to include as wide a spectrum of
participants as possible. Have you been helped by I-Witness Video after
being subjected to police misconduct? Are you an attorney whose criminal or
civil cases have benefited from the work of I-Witness Video? Do you know of
someone else who has been helped, in some way, by the work that I-Witness
Video does? If so, please get in touch with us by sending an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to keep your testimonials anonymous
if you’d prefer not to be identified by name.
Thanks and see you on Thursday!
