Support Yvette Louisell

On July 15th, Yvette Louisell (#0805144)  will be going in front of the parole board for her first commutation hearing.

In your letters, please emphasize that Yvette was 17 at the time of her crime, that she is remorseful for the terrible consequences of her actions, that both her judge and prosecutor support her release, and that she has worked very hard throughout her incarceration to grow, learn, and become a better person.

If you would like to send a letter in support of Yvette’s commutation, you can send letters to the following address:

Iowa Board of Parole
510 E. 12th St., Suite 3
Des Moines, IA 50319

Governor Terry Branstad

Support the Film

The filmmakers are working to raise funds in order to complete and release the documentary by Spring 2012 and distribute it to film festivals and liberal-arts colleges, hoping to inspire others to create similar educational programs in prisons around the country. The money you donate will be used to complete post-production on the film, which is currently being edited in Los Angeles, CA.

The Grey Area is a not-for-profit documentary and all donations are tax-deductible. All donations are greatly appreciate.

In sponsoring The Grey Area, you will not only help the completion of the film, but you will also help women affected by domestic violence in the State of Iowa. Once production expenses are paid in full, we will donate 100% of the film’s remaining proceeds to non-profit women’s advocacy groups.
