A Fighting Chance

//A Fighting Chance

We are thrilled to share the two-minute trailer of our 30-minute documentary A Fighting Chance, which sheds light on what it really takes for families to survive and thrive in Texas and exposes the tough choices families must make on a daily basis.

The film will chronicle every step of their journey as they fight to meet their most basic needs. Thanks to the generosity of Methodist Health Care Ministries, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and the Citi Foundation, we hope to touch the hearts and minds of Texans by exposing the harsh reality of poverty and challenging our common assumptions.

A Fighting Chance will air on KLRU Austin, the local PBS station, and others statewide in a few weeks.  If you are in Austin, please join us next week for a premiere screening of the film followed by a panel discussion:
