Citizen Advocate Webinar: What Hollywood Gets Wrong About Washington
Hollywood often portrays politicians as crass, self-interested egomaniacs who care more about their limo ride to the airport than their constituents. (Surprising fact: the most likely people to take limos in DC are Hollywood types on their way to testify before Congress.) CMF’s research and experience shows a different picture. In this informative and entertaining presentation, the presenter walks the audience through a series of movie clips that claim to portray Congress as it is – but in reality, massively distort the truth. And while it’s fun to poke at politicians (who sometimes actually deserve it), the fictional portrayal of a government that ignores the needs of its citizenry has a depressing impact on public perception and participation in the policymaking process. By providing an accurate understanding of how Congress really works, the audience will hopefully feel a little more encouraged about our democratic institutions.

This program is based on exclusive and private surveys of congressional staff conducted by CMF and is available only to members of CMF's Partnership for a More Perfect Union.

ALL MEMBER, SUPPORTER, OR EMPLOYEE OF PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND. HOWEVER, THIS WEBINAR MAY NOT BE SHARED WITH INDIVIDUALS WHO DO NOT MEET THIS CRITERIA.

The webinar will be conducted by Bradford Fitch, President and CEO of CMF.
