Please join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend on Monday, August 12 at 6:30 PM in the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Sanctuary, 2333 San Juan Avenue for the incredibly inspirational "Knock Down the House."
When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant to save her home from foreclosure. After losing a loved one to a preventable medical condition, Amy Vilela didn’t know what to do with the anger she felt about America’s broken health care system. Cori Bush was drawn into the streets when the police shooting of an unarmed black man brought protests and tanks into her neighborhood. Paula Jean Swearengin was fed up with watching her friends and family suffer and die from the environmental effects of the coal industry.
At a moment of historic volatility in American politics, these four women decide to fight back, setting themselves on a journey that will change their lives and their country forever. Without political experience or corporate money, they build a movement of insurgent candidates challenging powerful incumbents in Congress. Their efforts result in a legendary upset.
Special Guests: Cindy Black, Executive Director, Fix Democracy First; and Trent Diamanti, Jefferson Clemente Foundation
