Knock Down the House

This campaign ran from May 2019–September 2020.

On this campaign, we partnered with groups advancing civic engagement among underrepresented communities and supporting their use of the film as a capacity-building and organizing tool.

Highlights of our work on this campaign include:

  • 369 screenings in 41 states and 28 countries
  • Black Voters Matter incorporated the film into their programming on and off their tour bus across various states.
  • The Movement School integrated the film and its framework centering leadership representation and grassroots organizing via various capacity-building activities, including trainings, tailored resources, and a virtual special event, all especially valuable during the COVID-19 pandemic and crisis.
  • Justice for Migrant Women hosted a screening to kickstart their civic engagement work in rural America.
  • Make the Road used the film to sustain and energize their team of organizers fighting for justice among immigrant and working-class communities.
  • Malikah is incorporating the film into their Leadership Institute for nationwide organizers building power for historically oppressed women.
  • MOVE Texas hosted a screening and workshop to spark civic engagement among Latinx youth in Laredo, TX.
  • IGNITE screened film clips at select YoungWomenRun convenings, to train young women interested in running for office.
