Free Josh Wolf Coalition Update

JOSH SUPPORTERS!

A huge thanks to everyone who helped make last week's Free Josh Wolf event such a big success! We packed the house, raised about $1500 dollars, and collected a huge stack of hand-written letters to send to our elected officials.

Those who attended the event know we had an extraordinary lineup of speakers and premiered a poignant and moving short documentary by award-winning SF filmmaker, Kevin Epps.

::: WHAT'S NEXT? :::
TOMORROW (DEC 15) we will ask that every single Josh supporter call into Nancy Pelosi's SF office and ask that she take a stand for Josh and take time to meet with Josh's mother and legal team. Josh is a constituent in Nancy's district and this is an issue of vital local and national importance.

CALL THIS FRIDAY! (415) 556-4862
If you can't get through please try back later in the day or next week.

::: LETTERS TO ELECTED OFFICIALS :::
A special thank you to everyone who has already taken the time to write our elected officials asking them to take public stands in support of Josh. If you didn't get a chance to write your letters, please do so today!

We are currently focusing our letter campaign on Speaker Pelosi.

::: PBS FRONTLINE HOUSE PARTIES :::
We are working on organizing house parties around the Bay Area and around the country to coincide with the January 9th airing of a PBS Frontline documentary on the state of press freedom in the US. The show will include interviews with Josh by legendary journalist and UC Professor Lowell Bergman as well as details about his case. We also plan to screen Kevin Epps' short documentary at these parties as well. If you are interested in attending or hosting a party please contact andy.blue(at)yahoo.com.

::: PRESS CONFERENCE :::
Mark your calenders now for January 22nd when we will be holding a press conference on the steps of San Francisco City Hall. Time and details TBA
