Activism Now

Activism Now is a new initiative from Soft Cage Films that uplifts voices of change in Chicago and challenges the narrative of mainstream media. We attend local protests, direct actions, demonstrations, vigils, community discussions, teach-ins, and other events in order to document and promote community organizers and activists that are pushing for positive development in the community.
