If you don’t trust America’s political system, you have plenty of reasons not to — and you’re not alone.
In a video by RepresentUs, an organization aimed at ending corruption in politics, actress Jennifer Lawrence lays out a step-by-step guide that covers what’s wrong with America’s corrupt political system, but also how to fix it. Her confidence and revolutionary spirit resemble that of her fictional Hunger Games character Katniss Everdeen, but the issues she talks about are very real.
Political conversations about passing laws, financing campaigns, and lobbying can sometimes feel complicated, boring, or pretentious. But this video is anything but, thanks to the colorful graphics and silly banter between Lawrence and Josh Silver, director of RepresentUs. Whether you’re conservative, liberal, or somewhere in the middle, you’ll want to watch this comprehensive yet easy-to-follow video on how to pass election and anti-corruption laws, and ultimately, give the power back to the people.
Take notes while you’re at it because there’s a lot to process in just 12 minutes.
