Join Media Mobilizing Project for an evening of short films about people transforming their communities and building power. Produced in partnership with the No215Jail Coalition, UNITE HERE, Philly SUN, and Atlantic City Citizens Against the State Takeover.
All films were produced by participants in MMP’s Movement Media Fellows Program, an intensive hands-on training in film production to support community-led campaigns for rights and justice. A short panel discussion with the people and groups depicted in the films will follow the screening. Refreshments will be provided.
Admission is sliding scale, $5 – $20, and is free for MMP sustainers.
