HELLO, I'M SHADOW!


Be sure to follow along on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube!


I am getting on an Amtrak in a couple days and will arrive in Portland on the 30th. I plan to take residence at the ICE office, both as an activist and independent journalist. I will be remaining at the camp until federal officials force me to leave with all the other protesters or ICE is abolished from the sanctuary city of Portland. In living out of a backpack, I fortunately have all the equipment to arrive and already be autonomous. This campaign is to keep me connected to the internet and share what I am seeing with the world as it happens. This will be done through Youtube, Instagram, and Facebook on a daily basis. I plan to document all I can, possibly uploading what I see a few times a week (regardless of any amount of money raised). Money will go toward data on my prepaid Cricket smartphone and memory cards. If for some reason this campaign has greater success than I imagined, I will use excess money to replace damaged or lost equipment (like if federal officials confiscate my gear during a possible forced eviction).

THINGS THIS JOURNALISM PROJECT WILL FOCUS ON:

1) Documenting the daily life on social media
2) Filming speeches and public interactions at vigils
3) Interactions with law enforcement for honesty in media

If you have the finances to spare and would like to fund your own independent journalist to capture this even, I would appreciate the financial support. My previous projects included documenting my life as a homeless person, living in the longest remaining American communes for over two years, living in Slab City for a season, and hiking 500+ miles along the PCT without any money. I now look forward to standing on the right side of history with Portland!

FINANCIAL BREAKDOWN:

$35 a month: basic data plan that allows me to keep social media updated.
$5 per 2GB of high speed data: enables me to post longer videos on Youtube & Facebook.

ADDITIONAL EXPENSES:

$15-30 Memory Cards: I can expand my filming and photographic abilities with more room.

I will have a few hundred dollars in equipment at risk of being lost or broken (in living out of a backpack, losing what I have would set me back quite a bit and stand in the way of doing my next projects for a living so any insurance this doesn't happen would be incredible).

I appreciate any support I receive and look forward to arriving in Portland!
