Kickstarter_campaign.jpgAs an independent documentary film, “Dear Walmart” has thus far been funded through the generous support of individuals who believe in this film and the need for this story to be told.

As we head into the final phase of production and editing, we need to raise additional money to cover editing costs, outreach, and distribution.  Our goal is for this film to be seen by audiences in every city and town that has a Walmart. We want to bring together customers, workers, and community leaders to spark dialogue around workplace fairness, income inequality, economic justice, and how people organize to make change happen — especially as we head into a presidential election cycle when such issues should be at the center of national discussions.

In 2014, we were astounded by the support for our Kickstarter campaign, which raised over $50,000. This money covered more than a year’s worth of filming with our main subjects and with the movement of Walmart workers in Arkansas, Arizona, California, the District of Columbia, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Washington state, and more. Our Kickstarter campaign also underscored for us that there is a true hunger for this story, and a need to tell it from the ground-up. We are so grateful for the support we have received for this film!

All donations are tax deductible through our 501c3 fiscal sponsor Docs In Progress. Please help us bring the stories of Walmart workers and their historic movement to the big screen in cities and small towns everywhere!
