Join Adrian Grenier, Deepak Chopra & Susuan Sarandon For The Film That Will Help Transform the Unjust US Prison System

Award winning Producer, Director & Human Rights Activist Matthew Cooke and Actor & Executive Producer Adrian Grenier is using the power of crowd funding via INDIEGOGO to finish his film SURVIVOR'S GUIDE TO PRISON, an expose on the barbaric acts of the US Prison system that holds 25% of the world's prison population.

The campaign has only a few days remaining and needs your support today. It's about more than just supporting a film. It's about adding your voice to a long overdue movement for human rights and healing for the world's most dysfunctional criminal justice system. Learn more here.

Statistics:
  • The Innocence Project estimates there could EASILY be anywhere from 40,000 to over 100,000 people in US prisons who never broke a law at all.
  • 77% of Americans going into state prisons return within 5 years.
  • If you're an American, you're more likely to go to prison than
    anywhere else in the world.
  • More black men are in prison now than the total enslaved in 1850.

The film's Executive Producers include Adrian Grenier and Susan Sarandon, and features interviews with Harry Belafonte, Deepak Chopra, Russell Simmons, Author of The New Jim Crow Michelle Alexander, Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine, and Brandon Boyd, the singer of Incubus.
