Film Showing and Discussion

Documentary
  • When: Sunday, November 17, 2019 at 2:00 PM
  • Where: Granville Public Library, 217 E Broadway, Granville, OH

This documentary offers a compelling look at how anonymous campaign contributions, enabled by the Citizens United [2010] decision, undermine democratic elections.  Citizens United also specified thatstates could enact disclosure laws that would pass constitutional muster—and several lower courts have since upheld such laws. Some states, though, including Ohio, have allowed campaign financing to remain in the shadows. After the viewing at the library participants will be invited to join a moderated discussion and to use provided postcards, mailing addresses, and stamps to send their Statehouse legislators a brief request to update Ohio’s campaign finance laws.
