“Activized” is a 36 minute documentary that profiles a handful of ordinary Americans who — for the first time in their lives — have left their comfort zones and become involved in gun violence prevention, voting rights and immigrants’ rights.

Interweaving their personal stories against the backdrop of the causes they fight for, we experience their motivations, successes and failures, their sacrifices, and victories. Above all, we celebrate these inspiring, courageous citizens for embracing one of the most basic of American traditions – dissent.

The half dozen characters in this film are everyday people, not politicians or celebrities. Some are young – one is 17 – others are middle-aged. They come from various backgrounds and regions. By interweaving their personal stories against the backdrop of their chosen causes – gun violence prevention, immigration rights, voting rights – this film explores the motivations, successes and failures, sacrifices, and most of all the contributions of this small sample of Americans who are practicing what has been labeled “constructive patriotism.”
