Renewing the Collective Heart of Democracy

Mar 10, 2017

Films for the Planet is featuring a series of informative films and resources for those who are awakening to a renewed sense of civic duty, and who want to rev up their resistance and resilience toolkits. This program includes a list of excellent organizations that encourage discourse by building relationships across political, cultural, racial and religious divides. You can watch online, or with the Art of Hosting Film guidelines you can ignite conversations by hosting a party, group, or educational screening. Using film as a creative catalyst in community settings allows people to connect with others and engage in thoughtful discussions and civic actions that add enormous value to our communities and our world.

“Full engagement in the movement called democracy requires no less of us than full engagement in the living of our own lives.”

Parker Palmer

“The cure for despair is not hope. It’s discovering what we want to do about something we care about.”

Margaret Wheatley

“The fall of one regime does not bring in a utopia. Rather, it opens the way for hard work and long efforts to build more just social, economic, and political relationships and the eradication of other forms of injustices and oppression.”

Gene Sharp

“We do violence in politics when we demonize the opposition or ignore urgent human needs in favor of politically expedient decisions.” 

Parker Palmer
