Screening of Wisconsin Rising and Discussion with Director Sam Mayfield

Wisconsin Rising tells the story of the largest sustained workers resistance in American history.  In 2011, Wisconsin was the canary in the coal mine for America as newly-elected Republican Governor Scott Walker suddenly stripped collective bargaining rights from the state's public employees, undoing eight decades of basic workers' rights. Wisconsin Rising catapults the viewer in to the days, weeks, and months when Wisconsinites fought back against power, authority, and injustice.
