Host a Screening

Can one person truly make a difference? A regular citizen, Marion Stoddart took on big business, politicians, and public skepticism to save one of America’s most polluted rivers, transforming herself into an environmental pioneer and citizen leader honored by the United Nations.

Marion Stoddart: The Work of 1000 is the empowering 30-minute documentary film chronicling Stoddart's life, achievements, setbacks, and unwavering belief that one person can make a difference in the world.

Since the film's June 2010 premiere, the power of this vital environmental success story continues to ripple across the world—with screenings at film festivals, schools, universities, and community organizations, and in libraries, churches, living rooms, and beyond. We invite you to host a screening, too.
