Help Fight Voter Suppression
John Lewis Good Trouble

As we approach one of the most important elections of our lifetime, we are feeling ready for change. The issues that are on the ballot have the power to affect every part of our lives for years to come – but we must work together to protect our democracy. Our most recent documentary, JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE focuses on voter suppression laws, while SLAY THE DRAGON tackles the insidious issue of gerrymandering. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, but there’s a lot you can do to help. $1.50 will help 1 more person register to vote in states most impacted by voter suppression.

American Utopia
DEMOCRACY
David Byrne's American Utopia

DAVID BYRNE’S AMERICAN UTOPIA, directed by Spike Lee, is a groundbreaking filmed version of the Broadway musical sensation that ran from October 2019 to February 2020. The performance seamlessly reflects on important themes ranging from immigration to racial justice through a joyful celebration of music and dance. The film is a call to action to engage as citizens in our democracy: an invitation to reimagine our own utopias. Join our journey to a more inclusive America. Let's start by using our vote.

DEMOCRACY
John Lewis: Good Trouble

JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE tells the story of Congressman John Lewis, an American hero who has spent his life fighting for racial justice, equality, and voting rights. As he puts it, causing “good trouble.” He fought alongside Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement and helped get the Voting Rights Act passed in 1965. However, since 2013, new voter suppression tactics like strict voter ID laws and shortened voting times have intentionally made it difficult for low-income communities and Black people to vote. But you can help. Make good trouble for democracy by helping protect the vote.

Slay the Dragon
DEMOCRACY
Slay the Dragon

SLAY THE DRAGON shines a light on the timely and critical issue of gerrymandering. The film follows a handful of citizens’ groups, outraged by what they see as an attack on the core democratic principle that every person’s vote should count equally, as they battle operatives, special interests and an entrenched political establishment to fix a broken system. Through the commitment and bravery of the advocates in the film, SLAY THE DRAGON shows us that, living inside each one of us, is a dragon slayer ready to take back our democracy.
