Film Discussion – The First Step

04/20/2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

Host Organization: Braver Angels
State/Region: - National

Watch a movie on your own, then attend a discussion of it made richer by the wide variety of viewpoints that participants hold.

We choose films that address social, political or cultural issues that are relevant to society today. They may highlight liberal-leaning, conservative-leaning or independent themes, or feature actors or directors from opposite sides of the political spectrum.

We’ll be discussing the film The First Step (Brandon Kramer, Lance Kramer, 2021).

The First Step features media personality and change maker Van Jones attempting to bring people together to pass a landmark criminal justice bill on prison reform— and finding himself under fire from all sides.The film reveals an intimate portrait of an activist’s isolation and internal struggles, what it takes to make change in a divided nation.

Link to view the movie is coming soon.

Be sure to watch the film before attending the discussion.

** This event is open to the media upon approval. Media contact: Ciaran O’Connor,
