Via our local chapter, Films For Action KC aims to provide a definitive online space where people can find out what's happening in the Kansas City social change community. In these times of great change, we believe the role of media must expand - that there is a vitally underserved need for a local news and event hub that is dedicated to representing the voices of the people and groups that are working to change the world.

Film screenings, workshops, speaker presentations, demonstrations, direct actions, skill-shares, eco fairs, activist group meetings - if it's about making Kansas City or the world better in one way or another, we encourage you to add the event to the calendar. 

There are well over 20 progressive groups in the Kansas City area that share a common vision of a more just, democratic, and sustainable future. We're incredibly excited about the potential this has for growing and strengthening our local movement. We plan on heavily promoting the calendar to the wider public over the coming months. We hope our calendar will achieve three main goals:

  • To make activism more accessible to a greater number of people
  • To reduce the amount of promotional work groups must do to ensure a strong turn out at events
  • To make much of the invisible work of local groups visible to the wider community, and to other activist groups, so we can gain a better sense of our collective efforts and find areas of convergence and synergy

After you create an account on the site, you can add events via the KC events page or from the KC chapter homepage (kc.filmsforaction.org - right hand side, above local events) If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. Cheers!
