A significant portion of our work is connecting grassroots organizers with storytelling through documentary films that further their work towards liberation. Another aspect of our work providing support to speakers in our Speakers Bureau to raise the influence of their organizations and movements.

Get to know Illona Duverge, Movement School

“The PiL partnership helped push along the Green New Deal for Public Housing work in many ways. I think we have a lot more momentum and that’s because of the capacity support PiL provided us with… We were able to train folks throughout a pandemic successfully when other orgs were struggling to adapt to the digital space…I loved that the partnership was way more than just transactional. I felt supported emotionally, I felt like I had thought-partners, and overall got to spend time with amazing women trying to change the world.”
