This evening, the good folks at the Strengthen Social Security organization and Brave New Films are co-hosting a live, online town hall to premier a new film.
”The short and gripping video from Brave New Films, Social Security Echo Chamber, traces the origins of…Koch-funded lies about Social Security and how Fox News serves as a mouthpiece for those out to hoodwink the public and dismantle the program.”
In addition to the film premier, Social Security champion, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I), along with filmmaker Robert Greenwald and Strengthen Social Security co-chair Eric Kingson will hold a live chat.
Unfortunately, I am otherwise engaged in Dearborn, Michigan, and will probably not be able to attend. But you can.
The town hall is being held at 8:30PM eastern U.S. time – remember, tonight. Visit the Strengthen Social Security website here and scroll down to register to attend. You will then receive instructions on how to ask questions.
Given the announcement last Friday from AARP in support of cuts to Social Security, events like this are even more important that they might be otherwise.
You will be doing me a personal favor to attend and then come back to leave a report about it in the comments – or on your own blog and leave a link to your post in the TGB comments.
