Last Tuesday, we released a new movie – The Story of Citizens United v. FEC — a look at the crisis of corporate influence in American democracy.
If you haven’t watched The Story of Citizens United v. FEC, please have a look and help us push past 100,000 views by tomorrow. Then make sure to defend democracy by taking action with one of our partners.
And finally, if you’re not even sure why The Story of Stuff Project would make a movie about corporate influence in democracy (and you’re asking “what’s that got to do with bottled water?”) we encourage you to read Annie Leonard’s piece on Huffington Post: Why Democracy Only Works When People Are in Charge. You can also watch the video and join the lively discussion happening in the comments there.
Over the past week, tens of thousands of you have watched, shared, and discussed The Story of Citizens United v FEC. Thank you so much for helping to make the launch such a success and, please, keep sharing!
