11/7/18 — Fail State Team to Donate San Francisco and New York City Box Office Proceeds to Two College Groups

This Friday #FailStateMovie opens in San Francisco at the Roxie Theater and New York City at the Maysles Cinema.

With our release just a few days away, the Fail State Team and I are honored to announce that we will be donating 100% of our San Francisco box office to the College Promise Campaign and 100% of our New York City box office to the Project on Predatory Student Lending.

The College Promise Campaign is a national, nonpartisan organization working to address rising colleges costs and usher in free and universal community college for all Americans.

The Project on Predatory Student Lending represents thousands of student loan borrowers across the country against predatory for-profit colleges and litigates landmark court cases to protect students and the American taxpayer.

My team and I have worked closely with both organizations over the years, and this donation is a small gesture of our deep thanks for supporting us on our journey. It's our hope that FAIL STATE can shine a bright light on their important advocacy.

We would also like to take a moment to thank our San Francisco co-host The Institute for College Access & Success for helping us bring Fail State to the SF Bay Area.

We hope to see you at our SF and NYC openings later this week.
