To the End follows four intersecting stories of courageous women of color—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Varshini Prakash, Alexandra Rojas, and Rhiana Gunn-Wright—all of whom have been critical players in battling the climate crisis. The women have each been instrumental to the Green New Deal, ambitious legislation seeking to address climate change and the economic and the racial injustices it perpetuates in its wake. Set against the turbulent background of the 2020 election, pandemic, economic crisis, and historic protests against systemic racism, this powerful story illustrates how these women learn to work together to defend the right to a livable future for generations to come.
This film is part of the Environmental Film Series presented by Southern Environmental Law Center.
