These shorts teach the viewer how having a little bit of courage, trust, and acceptance can take you far. Join our heroes in discovering just who and what makes them who they are

The characters and communities in these animated shorts have what it takes for adventure. In one short, the world needs your voice. If you see an injustice... say something! This film explores the many ways that a single voice can make a difference.
