Shorts Program: Together is Possible
Activized is the story of ordinary citizens who have gotten off the sidelines and become involved in gun violence prevention, voting rights, and immigrants’ rights. These passionate political newcomers never saw themselves as activists, but something in the past three years inspired each of them to step up, put themselves on the front lines, and defend American values. Interweaving their personal stories against the backdrop of the causes they fight for we experience their motivations, successes and failures, their sacrifices, and victories. Above all, we celebrate these inspiring, courageous activists for embracing one of the most basic of American traditions – dissent.
