When We Rise

When we rise, we rise for justice.

It's human nature to fight injustice. This moving mini-series from Academy Award® winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk), chronicles the story of real families, epic struggle, and infinite hope. 

Inspired by the political struggles, setbacks and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.

Starring Guy Pearce (Memento) as LGBT activist Cleve Jones, Mary-Louise Parker (Angels in America) as women’s rights leader Roma Guy and Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under) as her wife, social justice activist Diane.
