Rise Funny or Die Premiere: Star of Orphan Black | Civil Rights

Amanda Nguyen
Washington, DC, United States

Mar 17, 2017 — Friends --

When President Obama signed our Survivor Bill of Rights into law we made history. Before Rise came along, only 20 bills, or 0.016%, in modern United States history had passed through Congress with unanimous support. Ours became the 21st.

I chose to join that tradition by penning my own civil rights into existence. And because my theory of change is that hope is contagious, I’m helping others pen their own civil rights into existence, too. Inspired by the Rise federal law, survivors, allies, and public servants in 30 states have organized to fight to build upon these rights in their home communities. That has resulted in the creation of 6 new state laws, with more in the works.

To celebrate this movement, we are flying survivors to stand with Congress and celebrities to say we're going to fight for these civil rights until every State has passed them.

If you are in the DC area, Wednesday, March 22 at 6pm, please join me, the Rise Family and our friends like Tatiana Maslany, the star of Orphan Black, as we kick off our social movement across America's Statehouses. Tickets are Free on Eventbrite. Details below.

Thank you for your support and for helping us make history together.
