Getting a Grip on Money and Politics


This new short-format web-doc examines campaign finance reform through new eyes, the eyes of Deborah Simpson, a former waitress and single mother who ran for election under Maine’s Clean Election statute…and won!

Simpson’s inspirational story is juxtaposed with comments of despair and disappointment from on-the-street interviews and masterfully highlighted by Frances Moore Lappé’s eloquent and passionate plea for us to embrace this new alternative to the trend of billion-dollar politics.

Based on Lappé’s new book, Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity and Courage in a World Gone Mad. For more see:
