Screen Made in L.A.

Join the Community Screening Campaign

After the success of our 2009 May Day to Labor Day Community Screening Campaign, we continue to encourage organizations, grassroots groups, congregations and individuals across the country to organize screenings, houseparties and actions around Made in L.A. in a nationwide effort to put a human face on the issues of immigration, immigrant workers' rights, and supporting humane immigration reform.

Join the current campaign and let your representatives and community leaders know how you feel about this issue. By creating a climate of empathy and understanding around the issue of immigration reform, we can lay the foundation for change.

1. Host a screening or houseparty!

Your screening event can help advance your group's mission, grow your membership, build strategic partnerships and even help you fundraise - all while building support for immigrants rights. In our Host a Screening page you'll find all the tools you need to make your screening an easy-to-organize successful event.

1. Purchase a Community Screening DVD for community & faith-based screenings and houseparties.

2. Download a free Event Planning Toolkit, and begin planning your event. On our Host A Screening page you'll also find bilingual English-Spanish sample flyers, template e-mails, sample press releases and everything you need to organize a successful event with Made in L.A.

3. After your screening – discuss the issues using our free downloadable Immigration Conversation Guide and take action by contacting local and national leaders, speaking with press, planning future events or working with local groups to highlight immigration issues in your comunity. (See the conversation guides for detailed suggestions or visit our Get Involved page for links to a number of partner organizations that offer specific template e-mails and/or suggested talking points for contacting elected officials around immigration reform.)

A recent study shows Made in L.A. makes an impact

Since its television broadcast on PBS's P.O.V. series, Made in L.A. has been shown at hundreds of community and educational screenings around the country, where it has received an emotional, passionate response. According to a recent study, it's a proven tool for social change:

• 98% of viewers who completed audience evaluations indicated that they "learned something new" from watching the film.

• 81% said that they had a much deeper understanding of the issues after watching the film.

• 69% said that they would probably "discuss the issues with friends and/or family."

• Over a third of audience members also indicated that they would consider joining an organization working on the issues or organizing a workshop/training using the film.
