People are asking how they can support the fight against the LA Times/LAPD, and police corruption and censorship of the press.
Thank you for asking! I can’t win without you. Here are some ways you can help.
You can sign the petition demanding my reinstatement at the LA Times.
Write a letter to the editor of the LA Times. They haven’t been publishing them, but they do read them.
Keep spreading the word on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Reddit and other social media. Silence and obscurity are the big enemies; powerful institutions like the LAPD and LA Times count on people’s attention spans being short.
Write to media outlets that ought to be covering this story, but haven’t been. Don’t be like the LAPD. Be polite! Prime suspects include:
Charles M. Blow, NY Times columnist
Democracy Now with Amy Goodman
KFI Radio Los Angeles
NPR Morning Edition
NPR All Things Considered
NPR – On the Media
Columbia Journalism Review
Don’t feel limited by this list. These are just outlets that seem like obvious candidates.

If you’re an editor or know one, you can commission me to draw something, or write something, or speak about something for money. I do all sorts of things! And I’ll travel anywhere. I’ve designed wedding invitations, tattoos, you name it. I need work.
