      EVENT DETAILS
      "Wisconsin Rising" Screening

      Back in 2011, long before the Vermont GOP invited the former Gov. of Wisconsin Scott Walker to our state as a celebrated guest and before his 2018 defeat for a third term of Governor, Scott Walker was notorious as the third governor in American history to face a recall election due to his efforts to decimate collective bargaining rights from the state’s public employees. These efforts to suppress workers’ rights prompted the largest sustained workers' resistance movement in American history. Wisconsin Rising, a film by Sam Mayfield, chronicles the workers’ resistance to Walker and big money interests. What did the people of Wisconsin do in the face of these perceived injustices? How did the citizens rebuild and reorganize, and what can the rest of America learn from their actions? Join us on May 22nd to find out!

      This screening is free thanks to the generosity of our sponsor Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center. To learn more about the film, visit WisconsinRising.com
