In the 3+ years since the 2016 elections, Americans have resisted and persisted. We flooded the streets and packed the airports. We spoke up at town halls and sat down in Congressional offices. We stood for human rights and for each other. We raised our voices and we voted. Through it all, RESISTERHOOD was there. This powerful documentary captures the stories of everyday Americans who became grassroots activists working tirelessly to defend our democracy and stop the erosion of our civil rights. RESISTERHOOD showcases the wave that brought us the most ethnically, racially and gender diverse Congress in history. It shares stories of hope that will re-energize the movement and inspire even more people to join the fight to secure a bright future for our country. RESISTERHOOD will weather the test of time as a vivid picture of this unusual period in American politics and stand as a testament to the strength of ordinary Americans during this extraordinary time.

A Note from the Founders:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

With the inaugural rePRO  Film Festival officially concluded, we cannot adequately thank all of the amazing people who have supported us – literally turning a dream into a national film festival in just eight weeks. We sold tickets in 29 states, raised thousands of dollars for our Beneficiary Organizations, and most importantly, brought together artists and activists from around the globe for conversations about awareness and advocacy. This Village of voices is one of the best things to come from this experience and we’re so glad to have you as part of the rePRO family.

 

Our final Call-to-Action: Make sure you’re registered to vote and do it now. Educate yourself on both the people and policies at the federal, state and local levels. Don’t delay! We encourage everyone to check out Vote411 for nonpartisan, factual information on how, when, and where to vote.

You can continue to support rePRO by donating to mama.film future rePRO screenings and Call-to-Action Conversations.

The rePRO team thanks the village of voices who supported our inaugural film festival! Please enjoy our Call-to-Action Conversations, check out our Resources page and consider donating to mama.film to continue these efforts!

Through various lenses – and by harnessing the power of cinema as a catalyst for connection and conversation – rePRO presented by mama.film will explore the past, present, and future of women*’s and AFAB people’s reproductive healthcare, awareness, advocacy and bodily integrity in America.

* Our definition of “women” includes transgender, genderqueer and non-binary people who are woman-identified.

With the rising threat to American women’s autonomy over their own bodies, we call on our audience to lift up the voices of those who are advocating for women’s reproductive justice during this vital election year, to vote accordingly and to establish a more equitable future for generations to come.

Through the power of cinema, mama.film, a 501c(3) non-profit organization, unites nurturers of all kinds to ignite conversation and to reflect upon our shared human experience.
