    Sustaining the memories of young people lost by gun violence; making our city better in their names.

    Precious Lives is a  multi-part radio series and engagement campaign being produced in association with WUWM, WNOV, and a wide range of community partners. The series will feature the stories of young people in the Milwaukee area we have lost to gun violence, including both homicide and suicide. We have many community partners who will help us make an impact with this project.

  • jewish filmThe Last Jews of America tells the story of disappearing Jewish communities

    Last Jews takes the audience into the unknown world of small Jewish communities living on the verge of extinction. Over 1 million of America’s Jews are in small towns that once thrived but have seen their populations dwindle as children leave for greener pastures in bigger cities. Exploring the themes of faith and community in the 21st century, our film takes you to Butte, Montana, Laredo, Texas, and Latrobe, Pennsylvania where you are sure to ask “there are Jews there?”

    Take a peek behind the scenes by following our Facebook and Tumblr pages.
