About the Film:
Small-town activism. Nail-biting elections. A last-minute power grab. In Wisconsin, voters are finding their lives increasingly irrelevant to state lawmakers. Through the stories of four tireless women fighting to have their voices heard, "Can You Hear Us Now?" unravels the ways that years of one-party control have reshaped democracy in a state in the crosshairs of American politics.
Sunday, May 2, 2021 to Wednesday, May 5, 2021
Registration for this event will provide free access to the film from 7 AM om Sunday to 10 PM on Wed
