Community Outreach

Hopefully documentaries such as As We Sow will reach the general population with a poignant message of what is being lost in U.S. agriculture, what forces are driving the phenomenon, and the consequences to people and communities."

In screenings across the country, As We Sow has stimulated discussion and debate among audiences large and small, rural and urban. This response made me realize how quickly people connect to the issues once they see them first hand—and how valuable media is in making those connections.

The list of educators, activists, advocates, and community leaders requesting this documentary for their classrooms, community gatherings, and discussion groups continues to grow.
