Join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend and co-sponsor Jefferson County Move to Amend for our online screening of The New Corporation.

The New Corporation reveals how the corporate takeover of society is being justified by the sly rebranding of corporations as socially conscious entities. From gatherings of corporate elites in Davos, to climate change and spiraling inequality; the rise of ultra-right leaders to Covid-19 and racial injustice, the film looks at corporations’ devastating power. The film also features activists and resistance movements, touching on issues such as the inequities laid bare by the coronavirus pandemic, and the movement for Black lives.

Countering this is a groundswell of resistance worldwide as people take to the streets in pursuit of justice and the planet’s future. When we started this, it was the unfortunately necessary sequel. Now it is the EXTREMELY NECESSARY SEQUEL. It’s time.

Special Guests: Linda Brewster, President, Fix Democracy First; Crystie Kisler, co-founder of Finnriver Farm & Cidery; and Lisa Dekker, a long-time activist, member of the Indivisible Sequim steering committee, and member of the board of PSARA, Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action.
