Media Mobilizing Project is going on the road.
The West Philly-based activist organization’s recently finished documentary, “Groundwork: Justice in the Birthplace of America,” is a series of five shorts about issues relating to poverty, including immigration, education and the minimum wage. Four out of five were filmed in Philadelphia. Each short is an on-the-ground look at how local organizers are working toward social justice in their communities.
In the words of director Milena Velis, “Groundwork is the story of a few of the many unsung heroes around us who give me real hope that we can create a better future.”
The org is trying to raise $20,000 via Kickstarter to screen it in 20 communities around the country.
The campaign ends on Tuesday, March 15. Check out the trailer:-30-
