Sarah Ullman was a young, Los Angeles-based director just starting her film career when the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting occurred, Vogue reports. Convinced she could make more of a difference, she began making political campaign ads and also formed the One Vote at Time Super PAC, with the intention of getting more gun control measures passed at the state level.
Not long after her epiphany, she worked on advocating for a Nevada background-check measure that eventually passed, and she did so with a film crew intentionally composed intentionally only of women. Since then, Ullman has made ads for 10 winning Virginia Democrats in 2017, and will work with an astounding 250 candidates in 10 states in 2018. “The only thing that keeps me sane right now is knowing that I will be able to look back at this time and know that I did everything I could possibly do,” Ullman told Vogue.
