Odyssey Networks is here to support and strengthen the work of the change-makers, building impact campaigns that bring together coalitions of faith-based and secular change-makers, including non-profits, corporations, policymakers, academic and professional experts to address some of the most pressing social issues facing our world.
The cornerstone of each impact campaign is a documentary that builds awareness around an issue in the most compelling way – through intimate and personal storytelling. The documentary is augmented by additional resources, including video modules that lift up themes of the campaign, study guides tailored to specific audiences such as corporate philanthropy resources, study guides for students, congregations, companies and more. We work with our partners to create innovative special events and initiatives that further the goals of the campaign, build awareness and engagement. Each campaign provides a platform for a call to action through the work that our campaign partners are doing in the field.
Campaigns begin with an aggressive rollout of the documentary that includes film festivals, congregational and community screenings, university and high school screenings and strategic screenings with influencers. Whenever possible, these screenings are accompanied by interactive and engaging panel discussions with experts.
Current Impact Campaigns
Current projects focus on the impact of mass incarceration on families and communities; women veterans transitioning to civilian life while coping with hidden wounds of war such as moral injury, PTSD and military sexual trauma; and community resilience in the wake of gun violence. Racial justice, economic justice, immigration, tolerance, trauma and violence are just a few of the areas we seek to address in our impact campaigns.
Milwaukee 53206: A Film about Mass Incarceration, directed by Keith McQuirter, examines the effects of mass incarceration on the zip code in America that incarcerates the highest rate of African American men – 53206 in Milwaukee. The film will provide the basis for a social impact campaign that will mobilize faith groups to build strong relationships with individuals, families and communities devastated by the multigenerational effects of mass incarceration.

After Fire, directed by Brittany Huckabee provides an eye-opening look at the realities of post-military life for women veterans and unique insight into overcoming the universal experience of trauma. The film will provide the basis for a national impact campaign we will be launching to raise awareness around the issue and provide support for veterans transitioning from military to civilian life who are dealing with moral injury, military sexual trauma and other hidden wounds, as well as for the chaplains, civilian clergy, clinicians, families and communities who support them.
