Power The Vote
The Redford Center's civic engagement initiative showcases local activists, storytellers, and culture-makers as the visionary leaders needed to build the movement towards a future rooted in environmental justice and regeneration.
Our 2021-22 series, Community Power, highlights how investing in clean energy, and specifically, clean transportation, provides the opportunity to cut harmful air pollution threatening our health and livelihoods, support people and communities who are too often left behind, and create millions of jobs that modernize our transportation and energy infrastructure. Through the power of storytelling, Community Power films showcase unity and community power in a collective call for civic engagement around clean transportation to build a safer, more just future for all.
“Every day is an opportunity to speak up, better our communities, and breakthrough to a healthier, more equitable future,” said Jill Tidman, Executive Director of The Redford Center. “As filmmakers who prioritize stories of progress and solutions, we see these wins more than most. The local leaders featured in our Community Power are proof that collective actions can lead to big victories, but they need and deserve far more support. It’s an honor to collaborate with LCV and Chispa on this series, as we use stories to inspire communities everywhere to push for clean transportation in the name of justice, jobs, and the right to breathe clean air.”
