UNFORTUNATELY, THE THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 2017 BADWEST MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING IS CANCELED.

PARTY GIRLS: Exploring Politics Across America is a nonfiction series that documents a road trip taken by six politically-distinct millennial women who were preparing to vote for the first time in the 2016 Presidential election; and who were willing to explore the issues facing this country together.

Three rousing and sensational feature length award-winning documentaries and a short documentary film will be screened. The Sundance Film Festival Winner WHOSE STREETS? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising, CHASING TRANE, the definitive documentary film about musician John Coltrane, BY BLOOD which chronicles American Indians of African descent as they battle to regain their tribal citizenship and BULLDOGGING: THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COWBOY PROJECT, a short film exploring the contributions of black cowboys to Western culture rounds out the day.
