Adafruit is going to the movies, join us! John Lewis: Good Trouble #JohnLewisIsGoodTrouble #GoodTrouble #JohnLewis @JohnLewisDoc @repjohnlewis @MagnoliaPics

John Lewis: Good Trouble – is the chronicle of the life of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia. Thousands of protests. 45 arrests. 33 years in Congress. Sometimes change calls for a little trouble. In theaters and on demand 7/3. As a team we’ve all gone out to the movies before at Adafruit, that’s not possible at this time, so we’re going to watch on demand, and you can watch on demand too with Adafruit! johnlewisgoodtrouble.com Check out the trailer here – YouTube.

Adafruit is purchasing over 100+ on-demand tickets for our team to watch on demand 7/3. Why are we doing that? Magnolia pictures joined with Adafruit and HUNDREDS of companies for the Stop Hate for Profit campaign. That means Magnolia, like Adafruit, is not advertising on Facebook. Businesses are standing in solidarity for our most deeply held American values of freedom, equality and justice, and we are not advertising on Facebook in July. But it does not end there, we’re going to help and work with companies that are not advertising on Facebook and show it’s possible to succeed without Facebook.

Using interviews and rare archival footage, JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in his life.

Adafruit contacted the Magnolia Pictures team and asked what we could do to help, so far we’re purchasing 100+ on-demand tickets for our entire team and we’re going to get the word out on our platforms about the movie John Lewis: Good Trouble. The ​official film website​ will list all platforms on which the film is available to rent at home starting on July 3rd – johnlewisgoodtrouble.com

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
