With the 2014 midterm elections just weeks away, right wing billionaires like the Koch Brothers were doing their best to buy America’s democracy for the GOP. So MoveOn initiated Voters Rising–an unprecedented people-powered campaign to make more than 5 million phone calls to rally progressive voters in battleground states to the polls on election day.
ART NOT WAR went to Boston, where MoveOn was training organizers to spearhead the campaign. We captured their stories on camera, along with an inspiring message from MoveOn Executive Director Ilya Sheyman. Our video was sent full base to MoveOn’s 8 million members, inspiring record volunteer turnout that helped the organization reach their goal of 5 million calls.
