Raising Hope: The Equal Voice Story

Raising Hope: The Equal Voice Story

From 2007 to 2009, a documentary film team from Onda Films, headed by Maria Bures, journeyed with five families as they participated in the Equal Voice for America’s Families campaign. The result was Raising Hope: The Equal Voice Story, a full-length film that has been broadcast nationwide in collaboration with Latino Public Broadcasting and 14 local public television stations. Active Voice, a San Francisco team of strategic communication specialists, developed an outreach strategy around the film to engage communities in discussions of poverty and inequality in the United States.
