Magnificent MoveOn honored in new documentary

Posted By on Wed, Aug 5, 2009 at 1:39 PM

From Brave New Films:

5 million members.

Scores of progressive legislative victories.

$88 million raised and 934,000 volunteers mobilized to put Barack Obama in the White House in 2008.

And it all started with one 15-word sentence in an online petition created by a young married couple in Berkeley, California.

Presented by Brave New Films, for the first time ever, the story of MoveOn.org is being told in a feature-length documentary film - MoveOn: The Movie.

Using the Internet to inspire everyday Americans to create an unprecedented new form of citizen engagement, MoveOn.org has reinvented politics as we know it. Because of MoveOn.org, millions of progressive-minded Americans, isolated from each other in red and blue communities all over the country, have been able to find each other online, organize themselves in the real world and build a movement that has changed the country forever.

This feature-length documentary tells the story of a movement that became the voice of opposition to an out-of-control Bush Administration and the inception of a new form of democratic participation.
