Money in politics affects all the other issues we care about. It's why we're not getting single-payer healthcare or addressing the climate crisis or stopping endless wars. It's why jobs are being shipped overseas and more Americans than ever are behind prison bars.
Every issue PDA is working on is obstructed by big money. And 85% of Americans agree: the campaign finance system needs serious overhaul. This is the year we get organized and take back our democracy.
We encourage you to host a screening of the acclaimed film Pay 2 Play: Democracy's High Stakes. Featuring Robert Reich, Lawrence Lessig and many other experts on the subject, as well as a range of solutions to the problem, Pay 2 Play is also a fun and inspiring film that has fired up people power across the country.
Show the film at home or a public library or even a theater with the help of the Pay 2 Play team, and then have a discussion about how to change our system on the local, state and federal levels.
Hosting a screening is also a great way to raise funds. Please take advantage of this opportunity today and let's build the movement to take back our democracy. Get your DVD, 50 postcards, two posters and a screening toolkit here.

“Ennis is an optimist at heart, and his belief that one person can make a difference is infectious…The difference with this movie is that it actually means to inspire hope.”— Washington Post
