Movie Showing: Democracy for Sale

 

 

Announcement from Appalachian Voices:

A border and barbeque aren’t the only things Virginia and North Carolina have in common. The two states also share some of the most gerrymandered voting districts in the country, cozy relationships between regulators and industry, and politicians who care more about serving their donors than their constituents.

A new film called Democracy for Sale features North Carolina native and comedian Zach Galifianakis and focuses on how big-money political interests have led to a lack of environmental protection in the Tarheel state, along with tax cuts for the upper class and corporations, education cuts, gerrymandering, and laws designed to decrease voter turnout.

Join Appalachian Voices and the University of Virginia Climate Action Society on one of two dates for a free screening of Democracy for Saleto learn more about North Carolina politics and its parallels to Virginia—and what we can do to fight back.
