Why is it #TimeForUnrest?

On the bottom Unrest social press kit you will find a download link to a prompt that says It’s #TimeforUnrest because… Share your story and/or why it’s time for unrest. You could also post a picture of yourself holding the It's #TimeforUnrest because... sign and use the #TimeforUnrest hashtag! Nothing has more power to change hearts and minds than a personal appeal. Encourage your friends and family to do the same!

Now You See Me


Now You See Me is a video project inviting anyone living with an invisible illness or disability to share their story. As we've traveled the world with Unrest we've heard countless stories of people living not only with ME but Fibromyalgia, depression, schizophrenia, epilepsy, lupus and a host of other "invisible" disabilities. Unrest brings audiences behind closed doors and inspires through its vulnerability others to share their hidden worlds. When we share our experiences, hidden pain can become transformed public pride – and power.
