Pay 2 Play Political Money Documentary To Be Shown in Everett

Pay 2 Play

A discussion will follow the showing of the film.

Got notice for those who may be concerned about the role money plays in politics that there is an event Thursday night that you may find of interest…

Pay 2 Play: Democracy’s High Stakes, a documentary from John Ennis details how deeply entrenched big money is in public policymaking and what these high stakes mean for the future of our country. Pay 2 Play follows Ennis in his investigations into elections in Ohio, in which politicians reward their donors with public treasury assets such as contracts, jobs, tax cuts, and regulation. Driven by the need to provide future generations a better world, Ennis’ film provides the public a study on how to find a way out from under the “Pay 2 Play” system of patronage. Pay 2 Play features Robert Reich, Lawrence Lessig, Marianne Williamson, Noam Chomsky, and many others

Following the screening, Aquene Freechild, Co-director of the Democracy is for People Project for Public Citizen, will lead a discussion about the recent efforts to pass a Constitutional Amendment in Congress, and how sixteen other states have urged Congress to pass a Constitutional Amendment to stop the corrupting influence of money in politics.

Everett: Thursday November 20
Firewheel Community Coffeehouse (2727 Colby Ave, Everett)
7:00pm Screening
8:30pm Discussion with Aquene Freechild
Sponsored by Fix Democracy First and the Green Party of Snohomish County
