Breaking Barriers for Families in Film

Workplace justice for caretakers in the screen industry


Doing work you love or building a life with the ones you love. No one should have to choose.


Everyone gets a seat; even if we have to bring our own chairs and build new tables.


Equity is key. We hold space for those traditionally silenced; in the workspace and beyond.

Who We are and what we do

Reel Families for Change, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit thinktank committed to generating meaningful, effective solutions for working families in the American screen industries.  

At Reel Families for Change, we recognize the often misrepresented, misunderstood, and marginalized — within our industry and beyond. We’re giving voice to those traditionally underserved and overlooked: women, mothers, parents, caregivers, BIPOCs, LGBTQ, and alt-abled, as well as those living with mental health challenges and neurodiversities.

Acknowledging that this silencing is often intentional or internalized, we gladly speak up in favor of and alongside our peers; emboldening, empowering, and elevating them to speak with the fullness of their power and their own voice.

In short, we’re speaking up for a change.
