ENGAGE LI & The Ethical Humanist Society of LI invites you to a free screening of the acclaimed documentary JOIN OR DIE.

Join or Die is a documentary about why you should join a club… and why the fate of America actually 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?

To RSVP for the event:

February 9th at 6:30 PM. Doors open at 6:00; program begins at 7:00. Food and drinks will also be served!
