The 99% needs a movie party in Inwood

Dear MoveOn member,

Remember how Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth inspired a wave of interest and action on climate change? There's a must-see film narrated by Matt Damon about how Wall Street crashed the economy—and it can do the same for 99%. 

Inside Job is the type of movie that makes your blood boil. But more importantly, it makes you want to take action to fix a system rigged for the 1%. 

That's why we're throwing hundreds of Inside Job movie parties next weekend, February 11 and 12. Currently, there are more MoveOn members in Inwood than parties to accomodate them—so we need your help. 

Can you host a movie party so that more MoveOn members can see Inside Job next weekend?

Yes! I can host an Inside Job movie party.

Thanks for all you do.

P.S. In case you missed it, here's the email from last week with more information about the movie parties. 

MoveOn members are organizing Inside Job movie parties on Feb. 11 and 12. Can you host a party in Inwood next weekend?

I'll host a movie party!

Dear MoveOn member,

Have you ever been one fact away from getting your conservative uncle to agree that Wall Street has too much political influence? Or been oh-so-close to convincing your banker friend that Big Banks, in fact, cannot be trusted to regulate themselves?

Conversations like these aren't about scoring political points—they're about getting our friends and family to wake up to a crisis that's costing millions of Americans their homes, jobs, and retirement savings.

The 99% movement is gearing up for a big spring. To get a head start, MoveOn members around the country are throwing Inside Job movie parties on February 11 and 12. The Oscar-winning documentary shows exactly how Wall Street's risky behavior—and Washington's inaction—caused the global economic collapse.1

Movie parties are a fun way to connect socially with MoveOn members—and a smart way to learn about a key issue before upcoming local and national elections. We need a local MoveOn member to sign up to host a party in Inwood. Organizing a party is simple—and you'll have a step-by-step guide to help. Can you host a party in your community?

Yes! I can host an Inside Job movie party.

Understanding what Wall Street did to us doesn't require a degree in economics. In fact, millions of Americans can learn what happened in under two hours. Inside Job provides a straightforward explanation of what happened and who's responsible—and can bring more people into the 99% movement for economic change.

Whether you want to throw a private party for friends or meet up with other MoveOn members, hosting a party is a great way to meet progressives in your community and talk about how we can create change together.
