Actor, activist, and union member Bradley Whitford narrates this powerful documentary about Supreme Court cases that threaten to undermine the rights of working Americans – and how we can fight back.
First Monday Films
For more than a decade, Alliance for Justice has produced films to help educate the public about social justice issues and expose students to careers in public interest advocacy.
The video tells the story of three everyday people who found themselves trapped in a system rigged to favor corporate wrongdoers and what that did to their lives and livelihoods. Together we can send a clear message that it’s unacceptable for corporations to use forced arbitration to duck accountability for their actions and exempt themselves from the civil rights and consumer laws that are the foundation of a just society.
The film describes the full scope of attacks on women’s constitutional rights nationwide, while telling the story through the prism of women’s day-to-day struggles in Mississippi and Texas. These two states are facing the dramatic and wrenching consequences of radical anti-abortion legislation. But they’re also places where women and their allies are fighting back, standing up strongly for their constitutional right to reproductive freedom and justice.
This film explores the growing pro-corporate bias in key Court decisions and their real-world impact on ordinary Americans.
