Film and Conversation Builds the Capacity to Work for Change

In this clip from Cracking the Codes: The System of Inequity Connie Heller, donor and activist with the Linked Fate Fund for Justice, reveals a childhood story demonstrating the differing effects of personal bias on her mother and father.  She explains that, “I chose this example because it is close to home, it reveals how we are all caught in a system of structural inequity that is very difficult to side step.  It is an example of how our actions have consequences and we need to think them through and take responsibility.”  Pre-order the film!

It is with powerful stories like Connie’s that the film Cracking the Codes: The System of Inequity reframes issues of race in the U.S. and reveals how our policies, institutions, and personal bias contribute to the system of inequity.  This film is designed for dialogue. It works to interrupt this self-perpetuating system at both the internal and external levels. It works to disentangle internal beliefs, attitudes, and pre-judgments within, and it builds skills to address the external, structural drivers of social and economic inequities.

Connie explained her enthusiasm for the film saying, “By using interviews, art and other modes of engaging material, Cracking the Codes: The System of Inequity supports the viewer’s capacity to have a rich, fulfilling and purposeful conversation on difficult topics, which ultimately will  deepen their capacity as individuals to work for change in all of their spheres of influence.”
