Picture This


People often ask... “Who are those Peltier supporters, anyway?” We’re all just ordinary folks from all around the world. We’re a diverse group, representative of all races/ethnicities, religions, social classes, political beliefs, etc. Yet, we have at least one thing in common. We know a grave injustice has been done to Leonard Peltier.

The ZOOM IN campaign concept is simple: (1) Send a message to AG Holder—We want justice... EQUAL justice... and we want it NOW and (2) Put a face to the message.

Using Film

Print a campaign sign using landscape orientation. Produce a photo of yourself holding the campaign sign. Not all cameras are the same and the level of light will affect image quality. We have provided four signs. Choose the sign that photographs best in your conditions. (We’ve noticed that, with flash photography, the image with the white background tends to work best.) Make sure the sign and your face are clearly visible in the photograph.

On the back of the developed photo, legibly PRINT your name, street address, city, state, country, postal code, and an e-mail address, if you have one.
Using a Digital Image

You also can use a digital photo. If you have access to a photo printer simply print your photo. On the back of the photo, legibly PRINT your name, street address, city, state, country, postal code, and an e-mail address, if you have one.

A less costly option is to electronically insert the digital image to a campaign mailer and print the mailer on standard paper. We have provided two styles of mailers (Word documents) for your use. The mailers are in Word format specifically so that you’ll be able to manipulate the mailer. Adjust the placement and size of your photo, as needed. When you’re satisfied with the appearance of the mailer, print the mailer.

Legibly PRINT your name, street address, city, state, country, postal code, and an e-mail address in the spaces provided on the mailer. NOTE: We prefer handwritten information because this tends to make your submission to the Attorney General more credible.

Please do not fold your mailer when you send it to us.

A box filled to the brim with campaign flyers, including all our faces, will be delivered to AG Holder’s office on or around February 6, 2010 – the 34th anniversary of Leonard Peltier’s arrest.

Deadline

All photos should be received NO LATER THAN JANUARY 31, 2010 (but please don’t wait until then to send us your photo).

Mail your donation, together with your standalone photo or mailer, to the support branch coordinators: ZOOM IN, c/o 2241 NW Hoyt Street, #214, Portland, OR 97210.
