Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, a grass roots social justice movement is emerging.

The moving story of The Anonymous People is told through the faces and voices of the citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, and public figures who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them.

Excellent!!! Everyone should see this film!
29 September 2013 | by anfinnertySee all my reviews

Whether you are in recovery, love someone in recovery or are still struggling with addiction, you NEED to see this film. This film does an excellent job of explaining the history of the recovery advocacy movement, what has worked and what hasn't, where we stand today, and the changes that are so desperately needed. From the opening shot, I was glued to my seat and I found myself laughing and crying. The film is both interesting and thought provoking. I left the theater feeling invigorated and empowered to become a part of this very important Recovery Advocacy movement. A huge thank you to the film maker and every cast member for creating this life-changing film.
