Pay 2 Play: Democracy's High Stakes
Public Citizen, Common Cause, TUTA, Clean Elections Texas and WolfPAC Texas present Pay 2 Play, a film about the corrupting influence of money in politics and what we can do to take our power back!
Tuesday, January 6th
Alamo Draft House Park North, 618 NW Loop 410
Driven to make the world a better place for his newborn daughter, John Ennis looks for ways out of our system of pay-to-play politics. Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make.
