CAN-DO was tasked with the almost impossible job of creating a film for the events surrounding the White House Briefing on Life After Clemency. CAN-DO and Harm Reduction Productions teamed up with Earthstream Media to produce a video of that would put a face on the invisible lives of prisoners seeking clemency. We asked family member to send in footage of themselves talking about their loved ones seeking clemency and we interviewed clemency recipients talking about the importance of clemency. We were not able to use all the footage that was sent to us but we will try to add more stories and make the individual segments of each family seeking relief for their family member available to them so they can utilize it in their on-going efforts to garner support for their loved ones. Please note that Anna Reynolds, speaking about her father had no idea her father would receive clemency on 3/30 only a few weeks after she recorded herself for this film. Also, Norman Underwood speaks about clemency for his friend Duane Walker in front of the White House only 5 days before Duane received clemency!!! Together we CAN-DO this! The clock is ticking – get involved!!! The password to watch this video is “candoclemency” minus the quotations. Thank you!
