“People can make a difference. By working together from the grassroots, as a collective community, we can make a change. Even though my films deal with a variety of different issues the common theme in all of them is grassroots empowerment – that we as citizens, if we come together in a collective way, can make a difference. And so, I’m really trying to, I guess, inspire people to be engaged citizens.”

Recently, Executive Director Alice Apley sat down here at the DER office with filmmaker Robbie Leppzer to discuss the Turning Tide Collection. Released as six individual DVDs, this collection spans thirty years of Leppzer’s work documenting social activism at home and abroad.
