“I’m running because everyday Americans deserve to be represented by everyday Americans.” –Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

A young bartender in the Bronx, a coal miner’s daughter in West Virginia, a grieving mother in Nevada, and a registered nurse in Missouri build a movement of insurgent candidates to challenge powerful incumbents in Congress. One of their races will become the most shocking political upsets in recent American history.  All of their stories will inspire us to stand up for “everyday Americans” and challenge the status quo.


We will hold a group discussion following the film.
