The Campaign

Christie Herring, Producer


On PBS in 2013.   A sixty minute film that follows the daily lives of activists working to stop the passage of California’s controversial Proposition 8 in the 2008 election. 

THE CAMPAIGN follows California's historic No-on-8 campaign to defend same-sex marriage through exclusive behind the scenes footage, situating the 2008 battle as a personal journey interwoven with the national history of same-sex relationship recognition since the 1960s. The story focuses on an ensemble of five characters — Alison, Holli, Richard, Anne and Claudia — as they labor tirelessly to defeat Proposition 8, sacrificing time with the families they are fighting to protect. The shocking passage of Prop 8 in seemingly LGBT-friendly California changed the landscape forever, both for the US LGBT equality movement and for the individual activists who threw themselves into the largest social issue campaign the US has ever seen.
