North Carolina — perhaps more than any other state in the Union — has been transformed by the new and growing tidal wave of political spending. The movie, Democracy for Sale, travels with Zach Galifianakis, the comic star of the Hangover movies, back to his home state to investigate how North Carolina has become a bellwether for how the money of a few has come to dominate our democracy. Galifianakis investigates allegations that the current state government was put in power by moneyed interests and has thus carried out a program that only benefits its backers: cuts to education, healthcare spending and environmental protection; lowering of taxes for the wealthy and corporations; and the passage of laws designed to roll back access to the ballot.
Join Public Schools First NC, AFARaleigh, Common Cause NC and Working Films for this free screening to learn more about how money in politics is influencing North Carolina and what you can do to help stop it.
