Doris & Laurel Ask for Your Help Now
We were inspired to create the Kent State Truth Tribunal on behalf of Allison Krause, our beloved sister and daughter who was killed by the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University on
May 4, 1970.
On the 40th anniversary of the campus shootings, the Kent State Truth Tribunal convened in downtown Kent, Ohio for four extraordinary days. Celebrated filmmaker Emily Kunstler and her crew recorded and preserved almost 100 personal stories of original participants and witnesses. Some of the participants spoke publicly for the first time in four decades. As we filmed the interviews, they were broadcast live on MichaelMoore.com and were viewed throughout the country. This is the first time that a truth-telling initiative in America utilized new media to broadcast the truth throughout the country.
Since the 40th anniversary of Kent State in early May, the Cleveland Plain Dealer broke a major story about a recorded order to fire given to the Ohio National Guard. Soon after, in the U.K., British Prime Minister David Cameron apologized for the killings of Bloody Sunday, a similar event in 1972 where British paratroopers fired on demonstrators, killing 14 protesters.
Inspired by these extraordinary events, the Kent State Truth Tribunal organized three events in 2010. At the 40th anniversary of the Kent State shootings, KSTT recorded, shared and preserved close to 70 testimonials from original participants and witnesses. Two follow-on Truth Tribunals were held in San Francisco and New York City, gathering close to 100 personal narratives.
Your donation helps us continue to learn the truth at Kent State in recording, livecasting and preserving the narratives from original participants and witnesses of the shootings. As we grow the Kent State Truth Tribunal archive of proceedings, we initiate the process of correcting the historical record on the 1970 shootings at Kent State. Please support our efforts.
The Kent State Truth Tribunal has been incubated with seed funding from the Krause family, who believe in and recognize the importance of truth and the healing it can provide. We are dedicated to creating the Kent State Truth Tribunal as a true and correct live archive, one that remains freely accessible to all.
