Check out their website for how to support them in this fight.

Festival themes this year range from major docs on profiling and the history behind Black Lives Matter, to shorts focusing on the Fight for $15 and the struggle for decent wages, workplace rights and dignity, to major feature docs on the battle to keep women’s reproductive rights legal and the fight against corporate domination of our electoral process and daily lives.
