Description

Join The Riveter  for a special evening celebrating women & politics to benefit the making of SURGE, a feature documentary. 

SURGE tells the story of this extraordinary moment, when an unprecedented number of first-time female candidates ran, won and upended conventional politics in 2018. 

Tired of being ignored, angered by government policies, and anxious about the future of America, thousands of women across the country were inspired to run for office in what became a barrier-breaking, historic midterm election. 

SURGE follows three congressional candidates from Texas, Illinois, and Indiana - Jana Lynne Sanchez, Lauren Underwood and Liz Watson - on their exhaustive and exhilarating journeys to Election Day.

 This event includes a special screening  of  SURGE trailer & special guests: 

  • Tess Rafferty (Comedian & TV Writer) 
  • Jana Lynne Sanchez (2018 candidate featured in SURGE) 
  • Wendy Sachs (a SURGE filmmaker) 

Cocktails and lite bites  will be served.
