Summary
  • The Freedom Files television series draws on the power of true stories to highlight vital civil liberties issues of our time and inspire viewers to take action. These half-hour documentaries feature the firsthand accounts of real people who have taken on the powers that be, often at great risk to themselves, in order to preserve their precious constitutional rights. Includes interviews, commentary, animation, music, and more
  • Freedom to vote: protecting the ballot: focuses on legislative efforts in Georgia and Texas to require voters to present photo IDs, though such rules would create barriers for low-income, elderly and disabled people, and disenfranchise millions
  • Freedom to parent: lesbian & gay families: shows how bans on adoptions and fostering by same-sex couples end up hurting thousands of children who are desperate for good home
  • Freedom to marry: same-sex couples: features three couples who are part of a lawsuit in Maryland seeking to overturn state law that bars lesbians and gay men from marriage. Despite being in committed relationships, they lack the hundreds of legal protections afforded to heterosexual married couples, and must worry about how to look after their families without these protections
  • Freedom from government spying: surveillance: reveals how the federal government is turning the U.S. into a nation under surveillance
  • Freedom from abuse of power: torture and unlawful imprisonment: shows how the U.S. government's use of torture, kidnapping and unlawful detention in the "war on terror" is undermining the foundations of our democracy
  • Freedom to dream: rights of immigrants: puts a spotlight on ordinances that seek to curb illegal immigration in towns across America, and end up fostering a climate of xenophobic fear
  • Freedom to live: the death penalty: presents compelling stories of people personally affected by America's capital punishment system that offer a unique window into its unfairness and inhumanity
  • Freedom to know: sex education: shows how teenagers across the country are being kept in the dark about vital information that would help them prevent unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases
  • Freedom to learn: school to prison pipeline: explores the policies that push young people, especially youth of color, out of the educational system and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems
