Join or Die – A Film About Clubs And Why You Should Join One

Join your Little Falls friends and neighbors for a local screening of the exciting new documentary, Join or Die. Whether you’re already an active member of a local club, organization, or non-profit, or someone who doesn’t consider themselves a “joiner,” this engaging film will offer compelling evidence for why our voluntary associations are vital to our local community and the country. Light refreshments will be served in the lobby after the film where attendees can discuss what they’ve heard . Only 100 tickets available!

Join or Die is a film about why you should join a club — and why the fate of America depends on it. In this feature documentary, follow the half-century story of America’s civic unraveling through the journey of legendary social scientist Robert Putnam, whose groundbreaking “Bowling Alone” research into America’s decades-long decline in community connections could hold the answers to our democracy’s present crisis.

Flanked by influential fans and scholars — from Hillary Clinton, Pete Buttigieg, and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy to Eddie Glaude Jr., Raj Chetty, and Priya Parker — as well as inspiring groups building community in neighborhoods across the country, join Bob as he explores three urgent civic questions: What makes democracy work? Why is American democracy in crisis ?And, most importantly… What can we do about it?

This event is brought to you by Main Street First, in association with Next, Little Falls Rotary, Little Falls Elks #42, Mohawk Valley Funerals and Cremations, and Rock City Runners.
