Jason Live on the Love-A-Thon

Jason Flom appeared live on the Love-a-thon, the first-ever Facebook Live telethon, held on Inauguration day, which raised more than $200,000 for the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and Earthjustice . The event was inspired by the Jerry Lewis-style telethons of the past and served as a kind of counter programming to the events of the day. Funds are still being collected by Crowdrise , the top platform for internet fundraising. The telethon was also streamed on Upworthy, the Love-a-thon’s official media partner, and can still be watched at u.pw/Loveathon.

Jason appears about 1hr 9mins into the video on behalf of the Innocence Project. He was interviewed with Everton Wagstaffe, who was fully exonerated in 2014 after serving 23 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.
