Summoned Frances Perkins & General Welfare Film Screening

In the depths of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt appointed Frances Perkins as the first woman on a presidential cabinet. Against overwhelming odds, she became the driving force behind Social Security, the 40-hour work week, the eight-hour day, minimum wage and unemployment compensation. Summoned: Frances Perkins and the General Welfare features compelling interviews with David Brooks, Nancy Pelosi, Amy Klobuchar, Lawrence O’Donnell and others while telling Perkin’s heroic story. After the show we will have a conversation with filmmaker Mick Caoutte over video. Suggested donation of $10 benefits Mr. Caouttes nonprofit work.

Masks required.
