Agents of Change 

The MTA is pleased to offer access to this powerful documentary to all our members so you can share it with your colleagues, students, locals, and community. This film was recently screened at our 2023 Summer Conference at UMass Amherst. We hope you are as engaged and inspired by its timeless content as we were. It captures the true essence of unity, solidarity, activism, people power, and change as we continue to fight these same challenges today!
