Join us for a SPECIAL SCREENING with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and filmmaker Hedrick Smith featuring his new film, “The People vs the Politicians.”

For every flaw in our political system, grassroots reformers are putting solutions to work at the state level.  This is not a story of left vs right, Republicans vs Democrats.  It’s the story of WE THE PEOPLE rising up against entrenched power, and winning.  The film features several successful people-powered efforts from around the country, including a segment on Washington State’s Initiative 735 grassroots campaign led by WAmend, that made Washington the 18th state to call for a U.S. Constitutional amendment to overturn decisions like Citizens United.

A pre-event RECEPTION with Hedrick starts at 6 pm.  The reception requires a $35 registration, which includes admission to the event, refreshments, and a signed copy of Hedrick’s book, “Who Stole the American Dream?”  Tickets to the main event, which starts at 7 pm, are a suggested donation of $6.  Note: Suggested donations and sales from reception tickets will go to cover cost of the venue and other expenses.
