Holthaus, Nicholas


Nicholas (Nico) Holthaus is a writer, teacher, and producer of social impact documentaries, political exposés and narrative films. He is the executive producer of the national Main St. Inc series, and the forthcoming Dear America documentary on the National Initiative.


In my research, travels and work around the country–primarily through political and social impact documentaries–I find that there are legions of well-meaning "reform groups." And regardless of their political leanings, the members of all of these groups have a common denominator: to reverse and eliminate the control corporate entities have on our legislation (and therefore on our lives). I firmly believe that the National Initiative for Democracy is the vehicle that can not only unite these groups in a common and positive, actualized vision, but has the best chance at real social, economic, educational and legislative reform. We all can do it, and we all will do it.
