Making Democracy Work

1996, 30:00 minutes


Explores the rise of radical right wing forces in the US and some forms of effective grassroots resistance to their anti-democratic agenda. This dynamic video is the first to examine inter-connected policy initiatives of the theocratic and racist right and how their hatred and bias hurts ordinary people.
Three segments focus on: David Duke's campaigns for political office in Louisiana; the conservative drive to pass anti-gay Amendment 2 in Colorado, which was ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in May 1996; and the scapegoating of immigrants, people of color and women in California.
