Producers: Kim A. Snyder, Maria Cuomo Cole, Lori Cheatle

Description:

From director Kim A. Snyder comes an insightful, rousing coming-of-age story of a generation of youth leaders determined to take the reins and fight for justice at a critical time in our nation’s history. Sparked by the plague of gun violence ravaging their schools, Us Kids chronicles the March For Our Lives movement over the course of several years. Highlighting X Gonzalez and other young activists as they pull off the largest youth protest in American history, this film follows these changemakers as they set out to build an inclusive and unprecedented movement that addresses racial justice, a growing public health crisis, and a broken political system.
