About this event

First they marched. Then they ran. Is this a moment or is it a movement? SURGE tells the story of this extraordinary time, when an unprecedented number of first-time female candidates ran, won, and upended conventional politics in 2018.

The film follows three women and their incredible campaigns including Liz Watson in Indiana, Lauren Underwood in Illinois, and Jana Lynne Sanchez in Texas.

The screening will be hosted on YouTube, and the panel discussion will be held on Zoom. YouTube and Zoom links will be emailed to registrants a few days before the event.

Screening Start Time: 6:30pm EDT**

Panel Discussion Start Time: 8:05pm EDT

**The YouTube link for Surge will be active from 10/10-10/13. That way if you are busy at 6:30pm on 10/13, you will still have a chance to watch the film ahead of time.
