For every flaw in our politics – dark money, voter suppression, gerrymandering, Citizens United, Mega-Donors, hyper-partisanship – grassroots reformers are putting solutions to work at the state level. This is not a story of left vs right., Republicans vs Democrats. It’s a story of the People vs the Politicians, of We the People rising up against fat cats and entrenched power – and winning.
Join us for stories of grassroots heroes making a difference, combating billionaire and corporate money, empowering small donors, fighting for voters rights, mobilizing to make our democracy fairer, more transparent and more inclusive.
Hedrick Smith, the Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and Emmy Award-winning documentary producer for PBS and PBS Frontline will join us for a discussion following the film. Hedrick has over five decades as a reporter, editor, producer and author and has established himself as one of America’s premier journalists.
This film is free and open to the public.
