Free film, ACTIVIZED
Join us February 25 at the Normal Theater for a free showing of the documentary ACTIVIZED. The film will begin at 7 p.m., and a short presentation will take place following the film.
ACTIVIZED profiles a handful of ordinary Americans who have surprised themselves by becoming political activists. The subjects of this film are newcomers to the political arena; people who never saw themselves as rabble-rousers or trouble-makers. But something in the past two years inspired each of them to step up, put themselves on the front lines, and make a decision to defend American values and democratic institutions they believe are under threat.
