This is a special showing with Wade Rathke, founder and chief organizer of ACORN.
THE ORGANIZER is a film about people who have dedicated their lives to the often hidden, usually messy and always controversial job of building power for the powerless. It’s also a very human story about organizational tension, personal tragedy, betrayal and ultimately of resilience. It’s partly a cautionary tale, but also a hopeful one. At a time of great political uncertainty, it gives an example of how a political force for the poor, marginalized and forgotten was built... and how it might just be built again.
