There is a movement in Arizona of Independents and Centrist Republicans switching parties, and becoming Democrats. The Arizona Democratic Party asked us to tell their stories.
Janet Garrett was a congressional candidate in Ohio's fourth district running against Faith & Freedom Coalition co-founder, Jim Jordan. While Jordan was on cable news every night playing defense for the President, his constituents were shell shocked from the opioid crisis. Janet Garrett committed to making the opioid epidemic her number one priority, so we made this film with her.
Jess Phoenix was a geologist running for congress in California's twenty fifth district against Steve Knight, the last Republican congressman left in Los Angeles county. With devastating wildfires consuming her district at the time of the election, Jess Phoenix wanted to highlight her approach to climate change in this film we made for her in November 2017.

The diversity of ideas as well as the diversity of cultures, races, and sexual identities are featured in this film celebrating the big tent that The Arizona Democratic Party represents for 2020.
