We the Voters - 20 Films for the People
EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH FOR CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
WE THE VOTERS is a new anthology of short films that focus on nonpartisan issues related to voting, democracy, elections, and U.S. governance. Each about five minutes long, the films are a mix of documentary, narrative, and animation, with our accompanying discussion guide that includes information on how to host a screening and foster audience engagement. Created by Vulcan Productions, a leading producer of high-impact, educational film projects, WE THE VOTERS was designed to encourage productive and impartial dialogue about civic engagement and the democratic process. The films (and a discussion guide) are available online for free in perpetuity. The hope is that they can be widely used to break through the media “noise,” offering fresh perspectives on a wide range of civic issues such as immigration, protests, polling, debates, media polarization, the Constitution, the two-party system, student debt, inequality, healthcare, and more. By helping to demystify how our democracy works, WE THE VOTERS helps people make informed choices while seizing the power of their vote.
