Dear MoveOn member,
Hi! This is Michael Moore, and I make movies. Maybe you've seen some of them, such as "Bowling for Columbine" and "Fahrenheit 9/11."
Like any filmmaker, I make movies to tell stories and entertain. But I also make movies to make change, to inspire people to get involved, and to encourage people to vote.
That's why I'm partnering with MoveOn for the DVD release of my latest film, "Fahrenheit 11/9!" And for a limited time, you can get your own MoveOn-edition of "Fahrenheit 11/9" by making a donation to MoveOn, which will use your money to help stop Trump's agenda.
The first two years of the Trump administration were so appalling, so racist, so unhinged … I knew I had to make a movie about it. The Muslim ban. Charlottesville. The attacks on the free press. Parkland.
But who wants to sit and watch Donald Trump for two hours?
That's why "Fahrenheit 11/9" is about far more than just Trump. It's about how we got here—and how the Resistance movement is bringing America back from the brink.
In the movie, I go to my hometown of Flint to meet people whose water was poisoned. I meet the kids and their terrified parents.
I go to Parkland to meet Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, and all the other incredible high school students who organized in the wake of the shooting at their school.
I go to New York City to go door to door with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the army of volunteers who helped her topple one of the most senior Democrats in Congress on her way to becoming one of the shining lights of the incoming House of Representatives.
"Fahrenheit 11/9" isn't just a movie about how awful Trump is. We all know how awful Trump is. It's a movie about the grassroots Resistance movement that led Democrats to win back Congress in November with the most diverse and progressive class of new members ever.
This movie is about fighting back. And in fact, you can fight back right now by by ordering a limited-edition copy of "Fahrenheit 11/9" from MoveOn. This way, your money will go to help them hire organizers, flood the streets with protesters, and pay for ads to help end the Trump presidency.
So what do you say? I promise you'll love the movie—New York Magazine just named it one of the Top 10 Movies of the Year—and I double promise you that MoveOn will use your donation well.
Thanks for all you do.–Mike
