About the Movie
If you were impoverished and politically voiceless, ACORN hoped to change your mind. For 40 years, the community-organizing group sought to empower marginalized communities. Its critics, though, believed ACORN exemplified everything wrong with liberal ideals.

ACORN and the Firestorm goes beyond the 24-hour news cycle and cuts to the heart of the great political divide.
