We believe in Change, Not Charity™



The police aren’t under attack, institutionalized racism is.”

—Kareem Abdul-Jabbar


a film by Llewellyn Smith, Christine Herbes-Sommers, and Kelly Thomson


Our institutions and systems are inherently biased. We’ve all internalized racism. Until we understand and are willing to deal with this, we will struggle with racism.


If you want to see change and believe in social justice, join us at Community Cinema for a free screening of American Denial followed by an honest conversation.
