Not In My Backyard Project PSA Announcement

25 Jun

From Jacquelyn Aluotto CEO/Founder of RBRW

 

THE NIMBY PROJECT PSA:

The NIMBY Project is an inspiration from the documentary “Not In My Backyard.” The documentary takes viewers into battered women and children shelters across America. Throughout the voyage, you see the reality of these women, teens, and children who seek survival in a country that ignores this epidemic. This is the first time cameras were allowed in the shelters, let alone the underground shelters. Producer and Human Activist Jacquelyn Aluotto produces the documentary not only to expose the truth but to give a 100 percent of the proceeds to save these shelters. The movement is headstrong with Celebrities, Activists, Communities, and Artists across the nation. Famous Actor Luis Guzman is a spokesperson for the “Not In My Backyard” documentary. The NIMBY Project is also features a TV show and movement to make-over shelters. In June, we are shooting the PSA for the documentary. We invite you to become involved in making a difference in the world! Help stop poverty, abuse, and homelessness. Help educate and heal those that suffer in our own backyard.

50 percent of homeless people are women and children fleeing abuse.

23-40 percent of the homeless are veterans.

1.6 million children in America are without a home.

Please join our movement and show that we are making a difference.  Break the cycle of violence and poverty. Educate, build, and inspire through the arts.

The PSA will consist of reading from a script that we will send to you prior to the PSA date. We also will have cue cards ready. The script consists of the following:

–The NIMBY Project, the “Not In My Backyard” Project inspired by the documentary.

–Why people should join this movement? –

People in our own “backyards” are homeless and suffering.

–Statistics: –––>1.6 million children are homeless in America. –––>Every 2 minutes a child becomes homeless in our “backyards.”

–––>50% of the homeless are women and children fleeing abuse.

They are the largest group of the homeless, and growing. –––>23-40% of homeless people are veterans.

Through this TV pilot, the NIMBY documentary, our “NIMBY: Save Shelters!” SmartPhone App, we can help save all these people by supporting the shelters helping them to heal and provide them safe havens to empower victims into survivors, and giving the voiceless a voice. Our Arts, healing, and education programs at shelters can help break this cycle of violence and homelessness. This is not just any show, but a movement we all can become involved in.

Help us save shelters and provide to the victims and the homeless. Help us rebuild humanity. You can be a mentor, a builder, an artist, a teacher. Anyone.

World Peace Begins At Home!
