Dear Friends of the Freedom Archives

You are the essential element. As a remarkably successful year draws 
to a close, we are reaching out to enlist your support. The Freedom 
Archives is not funded by any government agencies and receives 
support funding from only a few progressive family foundations. We 
rely on you - our individual contributors to keep our work going 
strong. Your contributions are the essential element in ensuring our 
success and bringing progressive history and its lessons into the future.

The youth program is the most inspiring aspect of our work! The 
Freedom Archives continues to teach high school and college-age youth 
key media and documentation skills while they learn about our recent 
history. We work on a daily basis with communities around the 
country. Our extensive archival materials are utilized for a
wide range of projects.

Our latest video, Legacy of Torture, testifies to the powerful role 
that radical media can play in building public awareness and a 
movement for justice. The film places the current case of the San 
Francisco 8 in the historical context of COINTELPRO, torture, and the 
war against the Black Liberation movement. Legacy of Torture has 
become a catalyst for solidarity. More than 1500 copies of the film 
have been distributed, sparking discussion in schools and 
communities. Your support provided the resources to release the film 
with Spanish subtitles for broadcast in Venezuela, for showings in 
Africa and at national and international film festivals.

We're also excited to announce the release of our Paul Robeson audio 
CD, exploring his political thought through spoken word excerpts. 
With an ear to younger generations, Robeson's passion for justice and 
internationalism create an ever-relevant learning tool and inspiring 
listening experience. Again, your support helped to make this 
important work possible.

Your contributions will also support one of our newest Freedom 
Archives projects
COINTELPRO 101a firsthand video primer on government repression 
against progressive
movements. Early phases of this project include interviews with 
survivors of government repression then and now.
The Freedom Archives has become a recognized voice in the movement 
for change. But you are the essential element. Please take the time 
today to support our efforts. Thank you in advance for your generous 
and much-needed contribution!
