Voting: Watch this 90 second clip from Brave New Films (and ignore the April date, it still applies)

Political Cartoon by Ben Sargent

When the U.S. Supreme Court issued Citizens United in 2010, it undermined the integrity of the vote by allowing billionaires and wealthy special interests to drown out our voices. And in 2013, the Supreme Court dealt democracy another blow when it gutted a key provision of the Voting Rights Act in its Shelby County decision.

We are in a crucial time for political change, but this can only happen if we work together. This April 16th -18th, we plan to make our voices heard once and for all. We will mobilize to counter undemocratic rulings and ensure both the right to vote and the integrity of the vote are upheld in this crucial election year.  Watch Here:
