How Films Can Inspire Us to Action

Start with a rousing documentary, like Robert Greenwald's Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price.

Invite a bunch of people over for a viewing. Serve snacks. has instructions and advice.

After the movie, give people time for discussion and an outlet for action: Printed postcards to political leaders, or info on petitions or upcoming rallies.

Watch what happens.
