Another creative way to get ideas heard. Ben Cohen explains the contest here
"The reality is that there's at least 50 million Americans who share these values
and end up agreeeing on the same 10 issues. But up until now it hasn't been possible for one person to follow 10 different issues -- much less be active on them -- as they move through Congress. I mean that's a full time job in itself. So what people have done is to focus on one or two issues. That makes a lot of sense individually and it works for many of the tasks that need to be done, but not in terms of influencing legislation in Congress. We end up fragmented and powerless when each of us focuses on one or two issues. It's a paradox. In terms of passing national legislation the issues that we all agree on have divided us. The TrueMajority campaign solves that problem." said Ben.
We're looking for the next new media stars who understand the medium, are creative artists, and have some passion for what matters out there.
