Planning your Pay2Play Screening

We are hoping to have screenings in Iowa take place the first two weeks of December.
The first thing to make this event successful is to pick a date!
To start the process of organizing the screening think about:
  • Organizations you are affiliated with (people you can invite, and/or organize the event with)
  • Where you can screen the movie (local church, library or your home are all good possibilities)

Discounted Public Citizen Screening Package. It comes with the DVD, 50 postcards and 2 small posters to put up at your event for $42 (including shipping and handling)

Watch the trailer.

Gearing up for 2015

We are organizing screenings of the new movie Pay 2 Play across Iowa which addresses the problem of big money in politics.

Showing it to people in your community the first two weeks in December will be a powerful way to:

  • Educate folks and empower them to act
  • Reflect upon this November’s elections
  • Pass city resolutions calling for an amendment
  • Plan an action for January 21, the 5th anniversary of the Citizens Unitedruling

It also will serve as a way for us to confirm and gain the support of Iowa. This will really be the launch of that campaign in the 2015 state legislative session.
