Insights from the Crowd. Your Surveys Inspired Our Funding Goal!

By Sandy Haksi On June 02, 2014 | 0 Comments

We asked for your feedback to help shape our crowdfunding campaign and you delivered! We were inspired by the surveys we received from supporters going all the way back to The Corporation's launch 10 years ago, to new fans picked up on Netflix and beyond.

"I BEG FRIENDS AND FAMILY--even strangers--to watch this film! I feel like people must see it to understand how change and recovery is possible."

"NOW MORE THAN EVER, people need to understand how and why corporations work the way they do. Our very lives depend on it."

We heard a lot of calls to reach the next generation, with many educators sharing their stories about the transformative effect the film has had on their students. Many of you would love to see new videos and materials to raise awareness, and told us repeatedly how The Corporation was the wake-up call that motivated them to action. This led to us wanting to offer the film FREE to 1,000 schools, as well as make it affordable for activists and communities to use in the fight against corporate power.
