Meet Our Family



We’re an active community of families from diverse backgrounds and walks of life, united by one purpose: to #SaveFiltering. We, the signers of this petition, are asking Disney and its Hollywood studio allies to end their assault on families through a legal campaign designed to shut down family-friendly filtering companies like VidAngel that offer us the ability to filter content in our own homes. In this specific instance, we’re asking all Hollywood studios to work out a deal with VidAngel outside of court that affords the consumer (you) exactly what you want. Namely great entertainment that puts parents just like you in the driver's’ seat, empowering you to consume your content at home in a way that works best for your family.



Why this is important to YOU

Content filtering technology empowers parents to protect their kids by removing curse words, sex, and violence from the movies and TV shows they watch at home. There are a number of services that offer this; our favorite is a company called VidAngel that enables us to filter on almost all of the modern devices we use every day.

If Hollywood has their way, services like these may come to end, as a handful of studios seek to shut down VidAngel.

We are not legal experts, but here is what we do know. 

VidAngel legally operates under the The Family Movie Act (FMA), passed over a decade ago by Congress. Lawmakers created FMA specifically to give parents the right to use filtering in the privacy of their homes, removing objectionable and offensive material. Because this kind of content is harmful to kids, the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association were strong supporters of the measure. But Disney and much of Big Hollywood were opposed to the law at the time, and it seems they still feel that way.

That means no filtered movies for families for years? How does that help families?

Is Hollywood really going to overlook 57 million Americans who want to filter movies? Why are they bent on thwarting all family-friendly filtering technology? As consumers and more specifically, as parents, you have the right to choose clean, wholesome, uplifting entertainment the way you want it! Add your name to the petition, ask Hollywood to call off the lawsuit and work out an agreement with VidAngel.


What challenges do we face? 

VidAngel has some strong support, but Hollywood needs to know this is something you truly care about.

Many of you have stated that without VidAngel, you simply would not consume content from these studios. We know that there are hundreds of thousands of you out there and we need your collective voices to be heard!Here's how you can help immediately:

  1. Add your signature the petition below and make your voice heard

  2. Like our Facebook page and follow our Twitter for updates 

  3. Spread the word to all of your friends, family and sphere of influence, it affects them too!

Yours in the fight,
Bryan and the Schwartz Family

    Me and my family enjoy the filtering option. When I was a kid I wasn’t allowed to hardly watch anything now that has changed for my little brothers and sister.

    VidAngel Rocks! I can now consume content that before I refused to because I am careful as to what I choose to see and hear. Much like being careful of the food I eat. I find it appalling that Hollywood feels they have the right to tell me I have to consume all the degenerative content and I had better like it. Why does Hollywood not want more consumers paying them more money for the content they are already producing??? Doesn’t sound like a good business model.

    For years I have wanted to be able to watch these R-rated movies, cleanly, but also wanted to support the movie industry however I needed to. I’ve always wanted to find a way that clean movies and supporting the industry could meet in the middle. I really hope for a day that we can make that happen without the fear of someone trying to shut it down. VidAngel has really felt like the answer to me, I love it! So I really hope we can make it work.
