Narrated by award-winning actress and documentary spokesperson Viola Davis, A TOUCH OF SUGAR dives into the type 2 diabetes healthcare epidemic that affects people in every community across the country, including Davis’s own family.
“I’m one of the 84 million American adults living with prediabetes and I’m sharing my story for the first time in an effort to inspire others to take action against the type 2 diabetes epidemic,” said Davis, spokesperson for A Touch of Sugar. “My sisters are both struggling with type 2 diabetes and my aunt also died from complications of the disease. Growing up, we just said they had ‘the sugar,’ which didn’t sound that concerning. But, when you look at the facts, there’s nothing harmless about diabetes – it’s a chronic disease that needs to be taken seriously if we’re going to get it under control.”
Planned Parenthood - Equal Pay
What is your equal pay story? What are you doing to fight for economic equality for all women? In this video from our #WeAreUNSTOPPABLE ART project, filmmaker Ani Simon-Kennedy partnered with Mighty Oak, a woman-owned company, to illustrate the stories of UNSTOPPABLE women who are paving the way in the fight for equal pay. “As a young female filmmaker and small business owner, it pains me to know that at current rates, America will not close the gender pay gap until at least 2059,” Simon-Kennedy says. “Equal pay for equal work has been the law for almost sixty years, but it remains difficult to obtain.”
