Emily’s Hope President and CEO Angela Kennecke is featured in the 2021 HBO documentary Our Towns from Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Steven Ascher and Jeanne Jordan.

Our Towns is a documentary that paints a remarkable picture of America and how the rise of civic and economic reinvention is transforming small cities and towns across the country.

Based on journalists James and Deborah Fallows’ book Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America, the film spotlights local initiatives and explores how a sense of community and common language of change can help people and towns find a different path to the future.

The documentary featured Kennecke’s fight against the opioid epidemic and Emily’s Hope.
