Coronavirus Crisis: Do What We Can For Vulnerable Communities

4.0 ·

Before the Covid-19 crisis, torture survivor Yashilda stuggled to live in London on £5 a day. Now, it’s impossible.

Freedom From Torture gives psychological therapy to asylum seekers who have survived torture to recover from torture. Our Emergency Fund offers financial support so survivors can focus on recovery rather than how they will eat tomorrow. Our fund is the last hope for survivors when poverty is standing in the way of recovery. But in times like these, it can be their only lifeline against the pandemic.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
