Host a screening - The Brainwashing of My Dad

Is anyone interested in hosting a screening of this film about the effect right wing media has had on our politics?

From Democracy for America:

Ever wonder how we ended up with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump?

Trump is a product of decades of hate and fear-mongering spread through right-wing media -- with Fox News leading the way. No film does a better job exploring the personal implications of this dangerous propaganda than "The Brainwashing of My Dad," which has received excellent reviews from critics and audiences alike.

In "The Brainwashing of My Dad," filmmaker Jen Senko examines the rise of right-wing media through the lens of her father, whose immersion in it radicalized him and rocked the foundation of their family. She discovers this political phenomenon recurring in living rooms everywhere, and reveals the consequences conservative media has had on families and a nation.

As Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren know, it's not enough to just fight the hate of the right-wing media -- we need to offer an alternative vision for America. With less than a hundred days left until Election Day, Democracy for America is organizing "The Brainwashing of My Dad" watch parties across the country on September 15 as a unique opportunity for DFA members to get together, get organized, and get to work building the political revolution to defeat Donald Trump and change the Democratic Party in the critical years ahead.

Will you host a viewing of the film "The Brainwashing of My Dad" for your family and friends -- and anyone else you want to invite -- on Thursday, September 15?

YES! I'll watch a trailer for "The Brainwashing of My Dad" and sign up to host a watch party on September 15!
No, I'm not able to host a watch party, but I can chip in $3 or more to support these grassroots events across America.
If you've ever argued with a friend or co-worker who relentlessly regurgitates Fox News talking points, you'll want to see this movie. Click the video below to check out the moving film trailer about how right-wing media poisoned the mind of filmmaker Jen Senko's father -- and what Jen and her family did to bring him back from the hateful brink:
Enjoy the trailer? Great. It's easy to get started as a watch party host!

As a party host, all you’ll need to do is locate a comfortable place for your friends and family -- and fellow DFA members, if you want to use our event tools to invite them -- to watch this important film. We’ll provide materials and resources for all hosts, including a free DVD of "The Brainwashing of My Dad" (or you can stream it over the internet), helpful prep and planning calls for hosts, and an important strategy call with a VIP on September 15.

Sign up now to host a watch party to experience "The Brainwashing of My Dad" -- it can be a small showing with just your family and friends or a larger gathering of people in your community who want to build the political revolution to defeat Donald Trump in November and change the Democratic Party in the months and years to come.

YES! I'll watch the "Brainwashing of My Dad" trailer and sign up to host a watch party on September 15!
No, I'm not able to host a watch party, but I can chip in $3 or more to support these grassroots events across America.
