The Rev. Lea Colvill, who served as the church’s priest-in-charge during filming, told Episcopal News Service she will gather with a few others for a private digital screening at the home of a local makeup artist who worked on the film and is a member of the congregation.“It’s a beautiful story about reconciliation, and it’s a curious thing that most of the people who were on the cast and crew have a relationship with The Episcopal Church,” said Colvill, now rector at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Idaho Falls.Jason Isaacs and Martha Plimpton appear in “Mass” by Fran Kranz, an official selection at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. Courtesy of Sundance Institute | Photo by Ryan Jackson-HealyDirector Fran Kranz chose to film “Mass” at Emmanuel Episcopal Church after he visited there in the summer of 2019. Colvill told ENS she was happy to give Kranz a tour of the oldest Episcopal church in the Diocese of Idaho, and during the tour, their conversation turned to the film he was developing, which tells the story of how the parents of a school shooting victim and the parents of the shooter come together to confront the personal impact of the tragedy years later.Kranz said he thought the church and its parish hall would be a great location for filming, Colvill recalled. “And I said, ‘OK, let’s make a movie.’”Also premiering at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival: “My Name Is Pauli Murray,” a portrait of the first Black woman ordained an Episcopal priestThat fall, the cast and crew took over much of the church for filming, though they paused on Sundays so worship services could continue uninterrupted. Colvill joked that her main responsibility was to make sure a neighbor’s dog’s barking didn’t ruin Kranz’s takes – the neighbor agreed to kennel the dog on filming days – but Colvill also provided some input on how the production could depict parish life and church spaces accurately.Providing space for a movie about reconciliation after tragedy seemed a natural fit for the church, Colvill said. “It’s an important conversation,” she said. “The job of the church is to help people reconcile with each other and with God.”The importance of those conversations was underscored during the filming by news of a real school shooting back in Southern California, which is home to some of the film’s crew. In Santa Clarita, a teen shot and killed two classmates and then shot himself.Kranz chose to avoid depiction of the underlying violence in “Mass,” focusing instead on the lives of the survivors and their struggle to heal emotional wounds long after the attack. Much of the movie centers around the extended conversations between the two sets of parents.“I always knew I couldn’t shoot this movie in L.A. or New York,” Kranz told the Idaho Mountain Express in November 2019. “I wanted to achieve a real sense of America, especially in the landscape, even though most of the movie takes place in one room.”In addition to offering the church as the setting for those conversations, some local Episcopalians were invited to appear on screen, mostly notably in a scene featuring a church choir, Colvill said.Supporting reconciliation efforts “might be some of the most important work I do in my life,” Colvill said, and she looks forward to the day, possibly toward the end of 2021, when “Mass” will have its local theater premiere for audiences in Hailey.Until then, $15 tickets are still available to view the movie when it premieres online at 2 p.m. Jan. 30 during Sundance.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

FRSB rules that GoGen and four national charities breached telephone fundraising standards

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: Fundraising Standards Board Telephone fundraising Howard Lake | 11 May 2016 | News Shamed: charity cold call sharks (Daily Mail front page headline on 7 July 2015)Breaches of the CodeThe FRSB acknowledges that all four charities had monitoring procedures in place. However, it judged that they were not sufficient or adequately carried out to monitor GoGen’s delivery of their telephone fundraising campaigns appropriately.All four charities breached section 4.2(b) of the Code by not having sufficient monitoring procedures in place.GoGen was found to have breached the Code clause that prohibited exploitation of vulnerable people when one fundraiser advised another to secure a donation from a potentially vulnerable individual.It also breached of the Code when advocating the use of pressurising techniques during training sessions for fundraisersIt failed to make clear that the purpose of telephone calls was to seek financial support, breaching section 8.3.1(k).Macmillan and the British Red Cross were found to have breached industry guidelines by failing to make it clear to supporters how their contact data may be used.Allegations not upheldThe FRSB did not uphold further allegations against the four charities, including a failure to use solicitation statements or to impose TPS restrictions.The FRSB ruled that the Code at the time enabled charities to contact TPS-registered donors if they judged that their relationship with those donors was sufficient, but advised caution in using this approach. As such, all four charities were compliant with section 8.2.3(b).

The majority of its charity clients withdrew their business following the newspaper’s allegations.Reactions of charities and improvements to the CodeThe four charities have all reviewed their telephone fundraising programmes and procedures in respect of third-party agencies, and made improvements to their processes. This includes more spot checks, mystery shopping and listening in to more calls, and closer monitoring of agencies to ensure compliance with the Code.The Institute of Fundraising reviewed and amended the Code too. This included amending the section of the Code to make it clear that explicit consent must be obtained from TPS-registered individuals before a telephone fundraising approach can be made.FRSB’s recommendationsThe FRSB has issued recommendations to improve future standards of telephone fundraising practices, including:That the Code of Fundraising Practice is amended to require a solicitation statement to be delivered before a potential supporter provides their bank details, enabling supporters to make a fully informed decision before they donate.The development of a standardised best practice benchmark for charities’ monitoring of telephone fundraising agencies.That a new Code requirement is introduced for written agreements between charities and third-party fundraising agencies to cover how the charity intends to monitor the conduct of that agency.Andrew Hind, Chair of the Fundraising Standards Board, said of the report’s findings:“Working with telephone fundraising agencies can be an important way for charities to reach out to new and existing supporters, but it is essential that any fundraising activity meets standards laid out in the Code of Fundraising Practice.“While this investigation outlines a number of failings at the agency, ultimate responsibility always rests with charities for the conduct of any third-party agencies representing them. We welcome the significant actions that each charity has since undertaken to ensure closer working with any agencies they work with in the future, including better monitoring and supervision procedures.”Institute of Fundraising respondsThe Institute, which created and oversees the development of the Code of Practice, issued a statement on the FRSB’s findings:“As the FRSB report highlights, since July last year the Code of Fundraising Practice has been significantly strengthened. This includes making it clear that charities must not contact TPS registered individuals without their explicit consent, as well as making it far easier to stop unwanted fundraising communications.“We welcome that the charities involved in this report have already made significant changes to their processes to address the issues uncovered. This reflects a large number of improvements in regulation and practice across the wider charity fundraising sector in the last year including a stronger Code of Fundraising Practice, new laws to protect vulnerable individuals, forthcoming guidelines and advice for charity trustees, and a new, more powerful fundraising regulator due to start operating this summer.”Oxfam’s responseMark Goldring, Oxfam GB’s Chief Executive, said:“We accept the FRSB’s findings and I would like to apologise once again for the fact we did not spot that GoGen were falling well below the high standards both we and the public expect of our fundraisers. We are, however, pleased that the FRSB has dismissed any suggestion that we were misleading our supporters or breaching TPS rules by calling people who had registered with the scheme to avoid being contacted in this way.“Oxfam is extremely grateful for the continuing generosity of the British public. We believe in treating all our supporters and those who we ask for support with respect – and that applies especially to people in vulnerable circumstances.“We halted our work with GoGen last summer, as soon as we were made aware of the allegations. Since then – as the FRSB recognises – we have significantly strengthened the monitoring of all agencies which fundraise on our behalf.”Macmillan’s responseLynda Thomas, CEO of Macmillan Cancer Support, said:“We are extremely sorry that the work undertaken by GoGen on our behalf did not meet the high standards we expect which is why we immediately suspended our work with them. We want to reassure our donors and the public that we have taken this very seriously and have made a number of crucial changes to help ensure this never happens again.“We have appointed a dedicated Compliance Manager who is undertaking a comprehensive programme of work to implement rigorous new training, quality assurance and monitoring procedures across all our fundraising activities. We have strengthened contracts with the agencies we use, increased the number of calls we listen to and introduced stronger safeguards to protect vulnerable people.“Alongside this we immediately reviewed and amended our data protection statement to make it easier and clearer for supporters to choose how they support us. Donor choice is vital to their support and we want people to be in control of how we communicate with them whilst ensuring they are still aware of how to access our vital support services. So we have undertaken a robust piece of research to develop and test a new statement that makes sure donors truly understand and explicitly consent to supporting us, and we will be changing to this new statement soon.“Our donors are at the heart of everything we do.  We only exist because of them and couldn’t offer our vital services to people living with cancer without their generosity. We are enormously grateful to every single one of them. Donors need to know that they can trust Macmillan and that’s why we have developed a new Macmillan Supporter Promise which outlines our commitment to always being open, honest, transparent and treating our supporters with the respect they so rightly deserve.”The Daily MailThe Daily Mail today reported on the FRSB’s findings with the headline Now charities watchdog backs Mail expose of cold call sharks. It again included a reference to “boiler room” tactics, and the reference to volunteer fundraiser Olive Cooke. It repeats the claims that she “had received repeated requests from charities for donations” including telephone calls from fundraisers, but omits to give the wider context of the comments by the Coroner and her family.The FRSB’s report makes no mention of Mrs Cooke. Nor does it mention the phrase ‘boiler room’ and only mentions ‘cold call sharks’ by referencing the newspaper’s headline.You can download the full FRSB report in PDF. FRSB rules that GoGen and four national charities breached telephone fundraising standards The British Red Cross, Macmillan Cancer Support, NSPCC and Oxfam breached industry standards together with telephone fundraising agency GoGen Ltd, according to an investigation report by the Fundraising Standards Board.The FRSB began its investigation in July 2015 after the Daily Mail published an undercover investigative report into telephone fundraising practices at GoGen. The newspaper claimed that the fundraisers working on behalf of these charities were “hounding” vulnerable and elderly people for donations, including when supporters had opted out of receiving marketing calls.Criticising GoGen’s training procedures, the newspaper’s reports claimed that that all four charities had been making calls to households registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).The FRSB’s investigation report, published today, is based on evidence supplied relating to GoGen, the British Red Cross, Macmillan, NSPCC and Oxfam. The industry’s self-regulatory body assessed fundraising practices against the Institute of Fundraising’s Code of Fundraising Practice as it stood in July 2015.last_img read more

Yahoo! employees get chance to see Chinese detainee videos outside company’s headquarters

The videos, which can be downloaded from the Reporters Without Borders website, consist of interviews with the brother of Li Zhi, a Chinese pro-democracy activist who was arrested on information provided by Yahoo!, and the lawyer of Shi Tao, a journalist arrested in a similar fashion.The Reporters Without Borders staff also tried to meet Yahoo! executives, who initially refused and even threatened to call the police, but finally agreed to a meeting today.Reporters Without Borders wants Yahoo! to stop cooperating with the Chinese authorities in the arrests of activists and journalists, whether through its branch in China or a local partner. It also wants Yahoo! to stop operating an e-mail service on Chinese territory and for Yahoo!’s servers in China to be brought back to the United States. And it wants any Chinese police request for information about a Yahoo! client to have to be submitted to a US court.In the first video, Li’s brother criticises Yahoo!’s role in Li’s conviction. “Li is in prison because of you,” he says. “He already had hepatitis and now he has pleurisy because the poor working conditions in prison (…) Our family is broken (…) I am convinced he is innocent (…) All this happened because of your company (…) and I hope that in future you will heed your conscience before doing this kind of thing.”In the second video, Shi’s lawyer, Mo Shaoping, says Yahoo! is implicated in many similar cases: “I have names, but I cannot reveal them yet (…) I think Yahoo! could refuse to collaborate if it recognises that there is a contradiction between Chinese law and international human rights standards.” In February, Reporters Without Borders sent Yahoo! a list of the 80 cyber-dissidents and journalists in prison in China, asking it to say where or not it was involved in their arrests. Yahoo! did not reply.The two videos were televised on 12 May on ABC programme World News Tonight together with footage of the Reporters Without Borders action outside Yahoo! headquarters (see the video). They will also appear in a report on the Franco-German TV station Arte on the evening of 19 April and in documentary to be screened on the Dutch TV station VPRO on 7 May.All this comes 10 days before a visit to the United States by Chinese President Hu Jintao. Reporters Without Borders hopes the US authorities will raise the issue of online free expression in their meetings with Hu, and that the visit will be accompanied by the release of Li and Shi and other detained journalists and cyber-dissidents. ————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: Organisation News Related documents Video of Li Zhi’s brotherX-MS-WMV – 3.2 MB April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China A Reporters Without Borders team stationed itself with a video player outside Yahoo!’s California headquarters on 7 April and stopped employees as they left the building, offering to show them videos filmed in China of people criticising Yahoo!’s cooperation with the Chinese police.
