The Free Speech Coalition reports that the second annual FreedomStreams '07 drive raised nearly $20,000 for the FSC legal defense fund, making it the largest member-driven fundraising event in the organization's history.
Led by HotMovies.com, over 300 adult studios contributed to the one-day fundraiser held on April 15. HotMovies matched each donation dollar for dollar through its dba, National A-1 Internet.
"It took months of preparation and hard work by the staff of HotMovies to enlist the support of their online studios for this special event. We are truly indebted to HotMovies.com," said Scott L. Lowther, Director of Membership Services for the Free Speech Coalition.
According to an FSC press release, the past year has seen a marked rise in state and federal action against the adult industry. "The best way to turn that tide is as the unified voice of a unified industry through the Free Speech Coalition. So, again, thank you to everyone," Lowther said. "It's more important than ever that we continue to work together to meet our challenges head on."
