I bet you've seen some great "films for action" that aren't in our library yet.
Why not add that documentary or video directly to our library? Half of our best content was added by members. Submissions just need to be non-fiction, embeddable (like from Youtube or Vimeo), and related to activism or changing the world in some way.
Here are some more tips on adding videos. We'd love you to become a regular contributor!
