get your Jena 6 T-shirt to support and join others sept 20th
On September 20th, we expect more than two thousand ColorOfChange members to come to Jena, LA to protest the sentencing of Mychal Bell, the first of the Jena 6 to be convicted. We're organizing a national Day of Action for that day, so you can help take the rally, and the issue, beyond Jena and into communities all across the country. The first step is to get a "Free the Jena 6" t-shirt to wear on the 20th.

To get your shirt by the 20th, you need to place your order by Thursday, September 6th at midnight (after the 6th, the t-shirt provider will send your order but can't guarantee that it will arrive by the 20th). /

Over 130,000 members have taken action on behalf of the Jena 6 so far. Tens of thousands of you wearing these shirts on the 20th will be an action in itself, but there will be more that you can do.

Closer to the 20th, we'll be providing flyers that you can download and hand out to people who ask about your shirt; you can also post them in local businesses, cafes, and other places. Building word-of-mouth awareness is critical; it's the reason so many of you have already taken action and why more people join this fight every day.

On the Day of Action, we'll also ask you to flood Louisiana state officials and agencies--particularly those who care about the state's reputation and who have influence on the Governor--with phone calls. And we will publicize not only the action happening in Jena, but the local actions you take, broadening the coverage, and making it clear that there's national support for these young men.

Again, thank you again for working to support the Jena 6. Together, we will make a difference.

Thanks and Peace,

-- James, Van, Gabriel, Clarissa, Mervyn, and the rest of the team
September 5th, 2007

P.S. With help from Goodstorm, we're able to offer the shirts at the low cost of $10 (plus shipping), and all proceeds will go directly towards the legal defense of the Jena 6. If you'd like to make an additional donation towards their legal defense, click here: /
