Few know about Martha and Waitstill Sharp, the two Unitarian Universalists who understood what it took to be upstanders in their own time. After nearly a decade of research, private investigation, informational archiving, historical verification, and filmmaking, Two Who Dared: The Sharps’ War is awaiting release and distribution. With the help of institutional grants and many personal donations of time and money, we were able to raise part of the funds necessary to complete our documentary. Now, we need YOUR help for the next steps to market and distribute the film, so that we can expand the community of those daring to make a difference!
This is a story of moral courage, an interfaith story, a piece of seldom learned WWII history, and an iconic story of the core Unitarian Universalist values that guided Martha and Waitstill in their first actions alongside the UU Service Committee and Varian Fry.
The film has been launched through a grassroots, community-based effort, at churches, synagogues, theaters, and schools; in cities world-wide!
Stand up and make a difference in the world. Our vision with this film is to inspire and empower the next generation of activists in the model of Martha and Waitstill Sharp; to encourage individuals to dare to fight social injustice, knowing that it all begins with belief and conviction. Join us in spreading the word!
