As you all know, change cannot happen without educating and inspiring the masses or without youth being at the forefront of whatever movement results.
Today, Roosevelt would like to encourage you to support an organization and a campaign that is the vehicle for exactly that. The Chicago International Social Change Film Festival (CISCFF) and the #CISCFF500 Campaign.
CISCFF is a vehicle for social change that uses film to educate and inspire people to address the world’s greatest issues.
#CISCFF500 is CISCFF’s campaign to donate 500 tickets to youth (ages 14-22).
To participate, all people need to do is buy their tickets for CISCFF (which will take place from 9/26-28 at Showplace Icon, 150 W. Roosevelt, see the attached schedule of incredible and inspiring films) by 9/15 via http://www.chicagosocialchange.org/#donations ($20/ticket) and a ticket will be donated to youth for each ticket purchased!
Purchasing tickets early ensures that more youth get to see and create change this year so don’t wait to get your tickets!
