Holly Mosher - Host - Award Winning Filmmaker for Change
A serial award-winning Filmmaker for Change, Holly Mosher brings socially conscious films to the public. In high school she developed a passion for both photography and philosophy that led her to pursue filmmaking. In her college entrance paper, she cited George Orwell’s idea that all art should be political, and today, uses that concept to guide her work.
After graduating with honors from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Holly produced a number of commercials and feature films.
David is a lawyer and political activist. David has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, run for political office himself, and has been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. He truly believes we must use ALL the tools in the toolbox to effect the systemic social change we urgently need.
In 2002 David ran for Attorney General of Texas, pledging to use the office to revoke the charters of corporations that repeatedly violate health, safety and environmental laws. He did not win the office, but the Green Party of Texas grew dramatically during his campaign from four local chapters to twenty-six. In 2004, he ran for President of the United States on the Green Party ticket and successfully campaigned for the Ohio recount. Learn more: MovetoAmend.org

By now you've probably heard about the recounts being initiated by candidates Jill Stein in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania is still on), Rocky de la Fuente in Nevada and by citizens in Florida.You'll recall that I started offering Free For All online for free after I saw idiosyncrasies in the primary that made me concerned about election integrity. Now I'm thrilled to see candidates finally standing up for a recount and the mainstream media finally taking this very important story seriously.
Over the past year, I've been collecting stories about election integrity and the recount at SaveOurElections.org. Watch and share this video about the importance of the recount and election integrity.
NOW, the Jill Stein campaign and other election integrity groups still need funding. Please donate and spread the word about this historic recount. http://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/recounthttp://recountnow.org/We need to fix our election systems NOW, or we will continually have elections that we can not trust. Thank you! Holly
