Dark Money: Screening and Panel Discussion

7:00pm–9:00pm

Join Metro East American Promise for a screening of Dark Money followed by panel discussion. American Promise, a national chapter-based organization, exists to empower, inspire, and organize Americans to win the 28th Amendment to the Constitution.

Dark Money, a political thriller, examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, Dark Money uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold. Official Selection, 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
