New American Economy is a bipartisan research and advocacy organization fighting for smart federal, state, and local immigration policies that help grow our economy and create jobs for all Americans.  NAE started as an idea: What would happen if we tried to bridge a gap in our nation’s immigration debate? What if we could see past deep-seated divisions that have stood in the way of progress on this issue, and instead talk about some of the true, measurable benefits of immigration?

What started as an idea has grown into a national movement fueled by groundbreaking research and grassroots advocacy. We have established a presence in every state, built lasting relationships across the political map, and generated significant buy-in from the media and other relevant influencers – in Washington, DC and well beyond.

New American Economy is a proud supporter of the documentary, “The Fight,” which serves as a celebration of the unsung legal heroes on the front lines who fight deeply human battles and work fiercely to protect our freedoms.

$5 of your rental fee will be used to support New American Economy’s critical research and advocacy efforts. We thank you for your support and hope that you are inspired by the thought-provoking stories featured in “The Fight."

Immediately following the feature, all ticket buyers will have access to a pre-recorded discussion between Producer Kerry Washington and the four ACLU lawyers featured in the film. This discussion is being made available exclusively for virtual cinema and in-theater engagements of the film.

The Fight is an inspiring, emotional insider look at how these important battles are fought and the legal gladiators on the front lines fighting them. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened to lose his career, a young woman’s right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. The Fight celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms.

Immediately following the film there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Kerry Washington and the five ACLU lawyers featured in the film (Brigitte Amiri, Lee Gelernt, Dale Ho, Joshua Block and Chase Strangio). This conversation is exclusive to virtual cinema and in-theater engagements. Additionally, you’ll have free access to a live Q&A on Sun. 8/2 at 7:00pm ET with the filmmakers and lawyers, moderated by Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post. Click here to view the live Q&A page.
