Based in San Francisco, GroundSpark is a small, Academy Award-winning media production and education organization with a strong national reputation for producing high quality documentary films that open up dialogue about social, economic, and environmental justice issues and spark shifts in attitudes, behaviors, laws and policies.
Over the past 20 years, GroundSpark has pioneered a long-term social change strategy that pairs media distribution with political and community organizing, and professional development on how to use our films to make a difference. Ambitious well-conceived outreach and education campaigns are crucial to our success as social change activists.
A leader in the field of anti-bias education, GroundSpark’s primary current focus is its Respect For All Project (RFAP). Through the distribution of award-winning films, accompanying curricula, and a training program aimed at educators, youth service providers and parents, the Project strives to create safe schools and communities by opening up dialogue about diversity, prejudice and discrimination of all kinds – on the basis of factors such as gender, race, culture, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and family configuration. Through this work, GroundSpark has been a national pioneer advocating for the inclusion of age-appropriate curricula that addresses anti-gay bias.
We also work with outside documentary filmmakers to help expand the impact of their films through partnerships with organizations in related fields.
