    (6/8) Film Screening: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

    Join us for a screening of Greg Palast’s The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, an eye-opening documentary that exposes the people who rig our elections and how they suppress the vote.

    This screening is a fundraiser for Rights & Democracy (RAD). Beyond working to boost turnout in elections, RAD keeps keeping people engaged with, and involved in, their democracy throughout the year. We worked to pass same-day voter and then automatic voter registration to reduce the barriers to casting a ballot.

    Doors at 6:30pm, event from 7-9pm. Sponsored by Rights & Democracy VT and Main Street Landing

    Suggested donation to attend the film screening is $10, though no one will be turned away. RSVP here today!

    The 2017 legislative session Vermont was anything but a bold response to Trump’s agenda.  Looking toward next year’s session and elections it’s critical that we continue to build momentum over this summer and fall, organizing, training, and turning people out around our issues in our local communities.  

    See you there!
