Advocacy Group to Review the 2012 Ballot Measures, Provide Updates on Clean Elections, and Provide a Special Showing of PRICELE$$
Phoenix, AZ - Arizona Advocacy Network will host a free community forum tonight (October 4). The advocacy group will provide a free showing of the documentary PRICELE$$. PRICELE$$ is a filmmaker’s personal journey across America to answer a burning question: why are some of our government’s most basic policis, like food and energy, so out-of-date, and can we do anything about it? Sharing the suspicion of fellow citizens, including a class of young civic students, that campaign money is involved, the filmmakers set out on a spellbinding --- and at times hilarious – ride from rural America to the halls of Congress to find out more, because democracy is a precious resource.
Following the film, Arizona Advocacy Network will lead a discussion about the film, and then provide a review of the 2012 ballot measures. Arizona Advocacy Network produces a non-partisan, bi-annual review of Arizona’s ballot measures.
The night will conclude with a discussion and explanations about the Affordable Care Act.
This event is free and open to the public.
