Join us Saturday, March 5, for our inaugural South Los Angeles Common Cause Member Group meeting and a free screening of the documentary, "Dream On." This event is sponsored by California Common Cause.
"Dream On" features political comedian John Fugelsang as he retraces the journey of Alexis de Tocqueville, whose study of our young country in 1831 came to define America as a place where anyone could climb the ladder of economic opportunity. On this unique road trip, Fugelsang speaks with fast-food workers and single mothers, undocumented immigrants and community organizers, inmates and retirees about their hopes, dreams and daily struggles.
