Erin Gruwell has earned an award-winning reputation for her steadfast commitment to the future of education. Her impact as a change agent attracted Hollywood’s attention. In 2007, Paramount Pictures released Freedom Writers, starring two-time Oscar winner Hillary Swank as Erin. The film is based on The Freedom Writers Diary, the New York Times bestseller that chronicled Erin’s extraordinary journey with her 150 high school students, who dubbed themselves the “Freedom Writers” in homage to Civil Rights “Freedom Riders” activists.
