The Democracy Rebellion – People Power in Action

For every flaw in our political campaigns – rigged elections, dark money, vote suppression, “Citizens United,” grassroots reform movements have come up with solutions and have been winning reforms. This is their story, the story of People Power in action. It’s coming this month on PBS stations this month.
This is the missing story of American politics, given short shrift by big media. Not Washington, but grassroots America. Not stale gridlock, but fresh reforms. Not negative ads and billionaire donors, but positive change and citizen activists pressing for gerrymander reform, voting rights for former felons, exposing dark money, and winning surprising victories to give voters more voice and make elections fairer in states as disparate as Florida and California, North Carolina and South Dakota, Ohio, Michigan, Colorado, Missouri, Utah and more.
This new wave of reform has echoes in American history – the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and the Progressive era, a century ago, when women won the right to vote, we adopted direct election of senators, President Teddy Roosevelt was busting the trusts, and Congress in 1907 imposed a ban on corporate money in election campaigns.. now reformers are back at it again.
