Free Screening of Do Not Resist

Date:
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Time:
5 p.m.
City:
Madison
Locaton:
Goodman Community Center
Join WPT and Goodman Community Center for dinner, dialogue and a screening of the film Do Not Resist – an exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States.

Throughout fall, Wisconsin Public Television and POV, television's longest-running documentary film showcase, are partnering with the Goodman Community Center in Madison to screen films that speak to some of our nation's most critical social issues. Accompanied by a free community meal and moderated panel/town hall discussion, these screenings aim to build common ground between attendees with differing life experiences.

Do Not Resist is a vital and influential exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States. The film puts viewers in the center of the action — from inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of "righteous violence" to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of military equipment in small-town police departments.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner will be served until 6:15. Screening and discussion will follow. Seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis. No RSVP is necessary.
