ACTIVIZED is a compelling and timely documentary that follows the stories of 7 ordinary Americans who, for the first time in their lives, have left their comfort zones to become activists fighting for voting rights, immigrants’ rights, and gun violence prevention.
Interweaving their personal stories against the backdrop of the causes they fight for, we experience their motivations along with their sacrifices and victories. Above all, we celebrate these courageous citizens for embracing one of the most basic of American traditions – dissent.
After the 36-minute film, director Eric Stange, NAACP activist Aylett Colston (who is featured in the film), and Gerald Givens Jr., president of the NAACP chapter in Raleigh, NC, will talk about social justice issues and how we all can make a difference. You can watch the trailer and find more info at www.activizedfilm.org.
