WHEN WE FIGHT
A FILM BY YAEL BRIDGE AND YONI GOLIJOV
In the second largest school district in the United States, in Los Angeles, California, 98% of teachers vote to authorize a strike. Watch as one of the largest educator strikes in modern U.S. history unfolds in real-time, highlighting the stories and leadership of some of the women who led it, from union leaders to classroom teachers.
From strike vote to contract vote, When We Fight goes behind the picket lines, documenting how and why teachers strike.
