• Social Change =

    1) An impact accelerator that provides individuals and organizations with the assistance necessary to accelerate their ability to transform themselves or those they serve

    2) A "think and do" tank which serves communities by researching and educating the public regarding policies that advance liberty and justice for all

    3) A truth-teller that showcases injustice via film so people can see and feel injustices & feel compelled to join the fight to address them

  • The Social Change Story

    Social Change is a people and policy focused national organization whose mission is to use every tool possible to change hearts, minds, outcomes and policies in a way that helps move our country forward. Specifically, we use film, technical assistance, training, legal assistance, workforce development and public education to bring the truth to light, build community, and give agency and power to those most marginalized--while also working with stakeholders at a system's level to educate leaders on policies that advance liberty and justice for all.
