May 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Special Community Showing with Wade Rathke, Founder and Chief Organizer of ACORN.

It’s also a very human story about organizational tension, personal tragedy, betrayal and ultimately resilience. The film is about how ACORN as a political force the poor, marginalized and forgotten was built.64448
