The purpose of this 6-month plan is to raise $8,736 in support of these missions.
- Catapult the cause of TSA abolition and the importance of human dignity and human rights (especially the 4th amendment) into the minds of hundreds of millions of people worldwide once again.
- Build a more organized and flying-public-friendly resistance as we work towards our ultimate goals.
- Provide you a menu of effective actions you can take to advance this cause.
What We’ll Accomplish
Here are some of the areas we’ll be working on as part of the 6-month plan. Please note that we need not just your financial support but also your active participation.
A survey of the community to find out what we should be doing. This is complete.
A renewed media campaign in support of dignity and human rights in airports with blog posts, podcasts, daily social media, op-eds and more.
A secret project in time for Thanksgiving. It will be cheap, online and has the potential to involve a lot of people.
Opt Out Day #2
Opt Out Day #2 November 22, 2012. I want committed folks at 60 airports distributing pamphlets, waving signs, videotaping, etc.
Organize We Won’t Fly groups by airport for pamphleting campaigns and support them with ready-to-print pamphlets, training and more.
Tools for Flyers
A statement card for travelers to read when they arrive at the checkpoint, a “Your Rights under the Law” card and much more.
Think of it as a virtual activist flash mob. Each week, we voice our opinion to someone new, an airline, an agency, a politician, etc.
An additional legislative focus so our friends can painlessly influence the legislative process at the federal, state and local levels.
Coordination with like-minded organizations so we can cooperate where feasible.
We’re updating our website to be more effective. This is ongoing.
This plan will require funds and organizer time in order to work.

To carry out this plan in 6 months is going to require an enormous amount of work. We simply can’t spare this time unless there is some kind of compensation and $1,000 per month is really quite affordable for the quality of work the Executive Director (George Donnelly) is putting into this cause.
|Executive Director / Community Organizer||$6,000|
|Mainstream media press release distribution (up to 2)||$1,430|
|Miscellaneous professional artwork||$500|
Plus we’ll incur as much as $306 in credit card transaction fees. So we’re asking for $8,736 total.
We Won’t Fly is NOT a government-registered non-profit organization. Your financial support is NOT tax-deductible. But it’s still a GREAT cause.

About the Executive Director
Hi, I’m George Donnelly, the newly-minted executive director and co-founder of We Won’t Fly. Since the very beginning almost two years ago, I have been responsible for our popular website, most of our blogging, the very successful social media presences and the YouTube video that got 1,000,000 views and sparked the TSA revolt of November, 2010. I’ve been interviewed by dozens of media outlets and CNN selected me as one of their most intriguing people on opt out day, November 24, 2010. I work as an IT guy, teacher and writer when I’m not spending time with my wife, 6-year-old son and our golden retriever.
We’re creating the executive director position and offering the community a chance to fund it as a way to break out of the holding pattern the TSA resistance has been in since early 2011.
