  • Why We March: Film program (link)

    The Rochester chapter of the Poor People’s Campaign and the VSW Film Series are pleased to present this streaming program, Why We March: Moving for Change. This program focuses on the act of organized marching as a form of political protest from the 1960’s to today. Featuring films from the VSW archive as well as recent videos by filmmaker/activists Peter KinoyRashaad Parker and Martin Hawk, this screening aims to answer the question “Why do we march?” and motivate participation in organized acts of peaceful protest.

    RocPPC is a regional chapter of the national Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, a nationwide movement to unite the poor and impact political discourse around poverty in America.

    The VSW Film Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by the ArtWorks program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
