Kicking off a cross-country roadshow in Chicago on the eve of the Democratic National Convention, Docs for Democracy is a two-night screening series of films about America at a crossroads. Designed to be positive gatherings for audiences who are interested and engaged in the political process—or want to be—both films in the series are paired with robust post-screening discussions with filmmakers and subjects in attendance. 

RATIFY follows a multi-racial, multi-generational coalition of activists and politicians taking up the mantle of the 100-year struggle to enshrine the Equal Rights Amendment in the United States Constitution by pushing Virginia to become the 38th and final state needed to ratify the ERA.
