Produced by Digital Story Company for Rosie the Riveter Trust and in association with the National Park Service.

 Don't miss the long-awaited No Time to Waste!

No Time to Waste examines Betty Reid Soskin's mission to restore critical missing chapters of America’s story. The film follows her journey from kitchen stool in a tiny theater to media interviews and international audiences who hang on every word she utters.

The 50-minute documentary captures the 97-year-old park ranger's fascinating life pathway -- from the experiences of a young worker in a WWII segregated union hall, through her multi-faceted career as a singer, activist, mother, legislative representative and park planner to her present public role.

At the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, Betty illuminates the invisible histories of African Americans and other people of color, and her efforts, charted in the film, demonstrate how her work has impacted the way the National Park Service conveys such history to audiences across the U.S.

There will be multiple screenings around the greater Bay Area. Tickets are not on sale yet so be sure to check this page and sign up for our e-news and alerts for updates on ticket information.
