ACTIVIZED tells the stories of six ordinary Americans who have surprised themselves by becoming political activists. The subjects of this film are newcomers to the political arena; people who never saw themselves as rabble-rousers or trouble-makers. But something in the past three years inspired each of them to step up, put themselves on the front lines, and make a decision to defend American values and democratic institutions they believe are under threat. Above all, ACTIVIZED celebrates these inspiring, courageous citizens for embracing one of the most basic of American traditions – dissent.
