Hi. My name is Evelyn De L'Ombre. I am an ex-Jehovah's Witness. I was born into the religion, third generation, baptised age 15, left school at 16 to pioneer. Although I "faded" from the religion in the early 1990s, I always believed that it was "the truth". However, at the end of 2017 I watched the BBC Panorama documentary "Suffer the Little Children" and realised that the policies of the Watchtower organisation were incredibly damaging, especially to abuse victims and to families. Since then I have spent much of my time researching the organisation, writing articles, creating videos and spending time on social media to raise awareness of the abuse caused by the Watchtower organisation's policies.

So what exactly do I do and how can you help me achieve this?

Evelyn De L'Ombre - Blog & Resource Library
My blog contains a mix of articles written about Jehovah's Witness theology, Watchtower policy, and my own experiences as a Jehovah’s Witness. I highlight the damage done to ordinary Witnesses, abuse victims, the LGBTQ community and families. I am keen to produce well researched and accurate information which takes time and often involves tracking down obscure reference publications.

As part of my website, I have created a resource library containing links to media involving Jehovah's Witnesses in the news, documentaries, movies and books. This library is growing daily as I try and keep up with the flood of information that becomes available.

Your involvement as a Patron would ensure that I am able to maintain and expand on this ever growing resource by enabling me to pay for web-hosting services that give greater flexibility over how my content is organised and that allows for much more information to be stored on my site.

YouTube
I create videos to highlight issues with Watchtower policy and the human rights violations that they engender by discussing current events involving Jehovah's Witnesses in their own media productions as well as from mainstream media. In addition to this, I create humorous video shorts about the organisation and artistic videos to bring home the devastation wreaked upon so many by this high control belief system.

Your involvement as a Patron would enable me to continue producing these videos to a high standard by enabling me to purchase needed editing software and hardware such as a good standard of microphone. In addition, I hope to be able to create more parody/artistic videos.

Ex-JW Sisters
This is a website that I created specifically for ex-JW women to have a voice. As Jehovah's Witnesses, women are treated as second class citizens and genuinely have no voice, no say. On Ex-JW Sisters their authentic thoughts, experiences and words can be articulated without fear of being talked over by a man. As the founder and editor of this site I source articles from many contributors, maintain the site and social media.

Your involvement would enable me to move this site to it's own domain name rather than the free site on which it currently resides. This means much more flexibility as to the layout and content and an easily remembered web address that can be shared easily.

Collaboration
More recently I have been collaborating with other ex-JW activists on video projects as well as writing articles for other activist websites such as JW Survey and AJWRB. I hope to continue to do more of this over the coming months and years.

If you decide to become a Patron, your kind involvement will give me the practical resources of a well maintained website, resource library, a good standard of video/audio software and hardware that enables me to continue to collaborate with others.

Social Media
I maintain an active social media presence to keep all of these issues mentioned in the public eye. In addition to sharing my own content, I also share my research, other activists' work, news articles, media, film, music: anything that is related to Jehovah's Witnesses and the Watchtower organisation.

Miscellaneous
I try and help other ex-JW activists with advice and resources as much as I'm able to. There are currently some projects that I am actively engaging with and as they come to fruition I shall be in a position to publicise these on behalf of those involved.

Your involvement ensures that I have more time to help others and that my own resource library would be more easily accessible for any who need it.

The Future?
I hope to continue and expand on my current projects, collaborate with more ex-JW activists and be able to continue my endeavour to raise awareness of the incredibly damaging policies of the Watchtower organisation. By doing so, I hope that maybe policy change may be enacted to ensure that individual Witnesses, families and ex-JWs are more protected and are allowed the dignity to live their lives in a humane and abuse free environment.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Goals
$15 of $150 per month
When I reach this amount, and after I pick myself off the floor from a dead faint, I shall also celebrate by:
  • upgrading the Evelyn De L'Ombre website, giving me more storage and a more flexible site;
  • upgrading the Ex-JW Sisters website to have its own URL and more storage.
  • The result will hopefully be a better and more comprehensive resource for the ex-JW community.
If I reach this goal, I pledge to write at least one additional article each months discussing Watchtower doctrine.
