The CCDP is proud to present Activized. The subjects of this film are passionate newcomers to the political arena; people who never saw themselves as rabble-rousers or trouble-makers. But something inspired each of them to step up and make a decision to defend American values and democratic institutions they believe are under threat. ACTIVIZED brings audiences to experience the stories of inspiring activists such as Keith Sellars, one of the "Alamance 12" who got arrested for voting in 2016 in North Carolina, Vikiana Petit-Homme, teen leader of March for Our Lives, or Elizabeth Cavazzos a first-time activist helping separated families and stranded immigrants at Texas bus stations against her family wishes. The director is Eric Stange, an award-winning independent documentary film producer, director and writer who specializes in current affairs and had many of his works featured on PBS American Experience.The film length is 36 minutes and a brief panel discussion with audience Q&A will follow. Parking is located next to the Theatre and the surrounding area. Concessions are available. For tickets or questions, please email rpuente@cuydem.com or call (216) 621-9750.
