Help Support the Making of the Home Alive Documentary

Home Alive Documentary Trailer

Through an indie-rock class offered at the University of Washington in Seattle, two seniors, Leah Michaels and Rozz Therrien, were exposed to a grassroots, self-defense organization called Home Alive. The organization was founded by nine women in response to the brutal rape and murderer of Mia Zapata, lead singer of the influential punk band of the early 90s, The Gits. Home Alive began in 1993 and experienced many changes: from becoming a non-profit to gaining international attention with a CD, and finally relinquishing their non-profit status in 2010.

The documentary is focused around community response to tragedy using the Do It Yourself ethos to try to make a difference. The documentary partially focuses on the difficulties of working as a collective, the limitations of a non-profit status, and the ever-present funding issues.
