About the Film:
“AMERICA THEY’RE COMING FOR YOU NEXT!” That’s the warning from a Wisconsin state employee after her union rights were destroyed by a Republican governor funded by corporate and billionaire donors whose ultimate goal is to break the unions nationwide — and cripple the labor-backed Democratic party. Set against the rise of the Tea Party in the aftermath of the US Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling, a citizen uprising to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker collides with the Tea Party-aligned “Americans for Prosperity,” a group founded and lavishly financed by two of the world’s richest men — David and Charles Koch. As Republican working class voters find themselves in the crosshairs of their own party and its billionaire backers, they are forced to choose.

Representatives from the organization Represent Us will be attending. It is the nation’s largest nonpartisan grassroots anti-corruption campaign. The campaign is bringing conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to stop political bribery, end secret money and fix our broken elections. In this time of political uncertainty, we need to work together to take back our government.
