Citizen Koch

CCDP is proud to offer another documentary about the impact of money in polictics on our democracy.  Check-in opens at 5:30 pm and our program begins at 6:30.  The Pittsboro Roadhouse menu is available for snacks or dinner.  There will be opportunity for discussion after the film.  Donations to the CCDP are welcome.

By detailing the personal and political consequences of a broken electoral system, Citizen Koch lands the issue of the influence of money in politics squarely on the kitchen table of all Americans. The film asks who really has the power in America, the wealthiest donors or the voting public? The answers call into question the very meaning of citizenship. 

"America -- they're coming for you next."

That’s the warning from a Wisconsin state employee after her union rights were destroyed by a Republican governor funded by corporate and billionaire donors whose ultimate goal is to break the unions nationwide -- and cripple the labor-backed Democratic party. Citizen Koch explores what the Wisconsin playbook and the U.S. Supreme Court decision that unleashed a new era of unbridled special-interest spending mean for us all. And it poses a crucial question: Who owns democracy in America?
