Upcoming Events

Sick in the System

Film Screening Party

Tuesday, August 11th, 7-10 PM

Irish Rogue, 356 W. 44th St (between 8th and 9th Ave.)


Join us at the Irish Rogue to view this powerful documentary made by a group of New York grassroots volunteers!

We will also talk about how we will help cure our "sick" system!

The film features real life stories, which have been central to swaying Congress and is something President Obama's been asking for. It's the all volunteer work of a young director, Brooklynite Brian Umana, and his team of twelve, who have interviewed dozens of New Yorkers over the past few months. We're learning how important personal stories are to this movement, and that's why this particular volunteer effort is so important: to get these stories to legislators.
