Dear Terry, 

It's time. 

In this moment, we have a huge opportunity as a country to demand real reform of how policing happens – which currently involves excessive use of force, racial profiling, and the murder of innocent Americans. And, disproportionately, of unarmed black Americans. In our country young black males are 21 times more likely to be killed by cops than their white counterparts. 

Everyday citizens with cellphones are taking action by deciding not to turn a blind eye to justice and recording the truth of what is happening to our fellow citizens. 


We just released a new short film about police brutality with a call for us all to do our civil duty and film the police. Some lawmakers are still pushing to criminalize the recording of police activity in public - and because we know we need more, not less, police accountability, we made this short film to share online!

In 12 states, it is illegal to record audio of police without permission and these states and others are now pushing for further laws criminalizing recording outright. 

Filming the police is a right. And it is the only thing bringing the severe injustice of current policing tactics to light.  

We reached 16 million people with our film Racism is Real because of supporters like you sharing it online. This movement needs you to be part of the change. Share this video today so we can reach another 16 million people who will help take action. 

Fight back. Pick up a camera for justice. Film the police! 

Robert Greenwald, President

P.S. Donate $10 or more today to get a "Film the Police!" cell phone sticker and all funds raised go to make our next racial justice short about racial bias in the new
