Pay 2 Play explores the status quo, and offers a set of simple solutions we can all work on together to take back our democracy. The film follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury — through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make.

All participants are encouraged to bring songs to share. Songs should relate in some way, even loosely, to themes of peace, justice, and/or a sustainable environment. We will use a circle/jam format with each person in turn choosing to play/sing a song, suggest a song for the group to sing, or pass the baton to the next person.
Instruments (acoustic) are welcome, and all are welcome to sing and/or play along. Songs can be popular ones that many people know or more obscure ones that we can learn. Those choosing more obscure songs are encouraged to bring song sheets so others can join in.

Bring yourself, your voice, your instruments, and your passion and let’s raise the roof!
