Watch a film. Get inspired. Make a difference.

Film changes lives. ActNow inspires film-goers to become educated and respond immediately to certain films and social issues in a positive and proactive way, inviting social and environmental change. Post-film, when you're feeling inspired, participate in hands-on opportunities to become more educated and be a vehicle of change — sign petitions, volunteer, make a donation, and find out ways that YOU can make a difference.

EMANUEL

ActNow Actions:

  1. A representative of the Crested Butte chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a national organization that was founded after the mass shooting Sandy Hook Elementary School. Talk with Kelly Jo about how to be involved locally.

  2. Donate your firearm to RAWtools so that it can be turned into a garden tool; this is perhaps the clearest way to turn swords into plows.

  3. Support Scrubs Addressing the Firearm Epidemic (SAFE) as they work to conduct research on gun violence as a public health crisis; because data could save lives.

SANTUARIO

ActNow Actions:

  1. Connect with and support Casa de Paz (House of Peace) who offers free lodging and meals to guests visiting their loved ones locked inside the immigrant detention center in Colorado. They open the doors of their home to men and women who have been released from detention and need a place to stay as they make plans to get home to their families.

  2. Like Inmigrantes Unidos de Gunnison on Facebook, and learn how you can support people in the Gunnison Valley.

  3. Learn more about the work of Together Rising and what they are doing to reunite families that have been separated in our country.

BARE EXISTENCE

ActNow Actions:

  1. Discover how you can take action with Polar Bears International
    Polar Bears International's mission is to conserve polar bears and the sea ice they depend on. Through media, science, and advocacy, they work to inspire people to care about the Arctic, the threats to its future, and the connection between this remote region and our global climate.


SAVE THE HEARTS

ActNow Actions:

  1. Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is a common and highly treatable disease. A relatively simple medical procedure gives children high chances of survival and a long healthy life. However, in developing countries, access to this treatment is severely limited. With an inability to travel to facilities or pay for treatment, many children with CHD in places like rural India simply do not survive. Connect with Save the Hearts to see how you can help save the life of a child.


A GRAND JOURNEY

ActNow Actions:

  1. Teton Adaptive Sports offers year-round programming in climbing, camping, cycling, mountain biking, hiking, paddling, alpine and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating/sled hockey with a staff committed to improving quality of life for athletes with disabilities from this area and visiting the Tetons.

  2. Learn more about transformative adventures through the Operation Rise and Conquer program, the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte provides high-quality adventure activities for military service personnel and first responders who have a disability. Operation Rise and Conquer was created in 2013 to empower and inspire wounded soldiers and veterans to regain confidence and trust in themselves and others.
