The Campaign - Film Screening and Discussion

THE CAMPAIGN tells the inside story of the fight to stop California’s wildly controversial Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage and ignited a national movement. Filmmaker Christie Herring will be there to talk about the film and answer questions. To RSVP for this event click here.

THE CAMPAIGN takes an inspiring look at California’s No on 8 Campaign to defend same-sex marriage and covers the surprising history of relationship recognition in the United States. The story unfolds as a human drama following five ordinary people compelled by a passionate belief in equality. Their stories are placed inside a 60-year national context that explores the push for recognition of same-sex relationships since the 1950s. Ultimately THE CAMPAIGN provides a window into a timeless question: What inspires everyday people to opt in for something bigger than themselves?
