A video contest that made OBVIOUS THE LEGAL MISTAKE THAT GAVE RISE TO SUPERPACS
What we did
On September 4th, 2023, we put out a call to creators across the country: Make a video explaining the legal mistake that led to superpacs. The best video would win a $50,000 prize.
by november 7th, we had received over 150 video entries — and so many of them were extraordinary!
So Whats next?
If we are going to cancel superpacs, we need the videos to go viral — not just the winners, but all of the best ones.
So here’s the plan:
We are going to be raising money to promote the best videos.
The money will go to running digital ads and to rewarding the content creators.
If we are successful, these videos will be seen across the united states, and finally it will become clear to lawyers and the public alike: The first amendment does not require superpacs.

Our video was rather mundane. We wanted people to present the mistake in a truly interesting way.
It’s critical that entrants exposed the legal mistake explained in the stem video.
The more shareable the video was, the better chance it had of winning the $50,000 prize
