Story Leads to Action screening of ‘The Campaign’ Thursday at 92Y Tribeca

As posted on

"Please join us for the last Story Leads to Action screening of spring, with The Campaign, a feature documentary-in-progress that rides the daily emotional rollercoaster of the community of people-turned-activists who worked to defeat Proposition 8 - the 2008 initiative that outlawed same-sex marriage in California. Filmmaker Christie Herring was granted exclusive access to the "No on 8" campaign headquarters in San Francisco. Christie will be flying in from San Francisco to screen her work-in-progress for advocates, educators and activists who care about these issues in NYC and the Tri-State area. 

"Learn how the film relates, resonates, inspires and calls to action. We'll be looking for feedback on balancing the needs of this compelling narrative with the needs of a movement that stands poised to defend their love, rights and equality at the ballot box, in the courts and around the dinner table.
