​Together Frankfort

Together Frankfort invites citizens to participate in our work group on dark money.  This group evolved from the discussions following the community viewing of the movie, Dark Money. The group will be meeting, monthly, to provide informational sessions about actions to address dark money, about what other organizations are doing in which one can participate, and about what YOU can do!

Together Frankfort invited the community to a screening of the movie, Dark Money, Wednesday, November 3, 6:30 PM in the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, Brown Forman Room, 100 W. Broadway, Frankfort, KY . Over 60 participants viewed the film and then engaged in a group discussion led by Richard Taylor.

  • The Movie: DARK MONEY examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, DARK MONEY uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold. 

  • The Discussion:
