Virtual Events - Wolf-PAC
Help us reach 28 million steps before Oct. 31st! Join the Step up to End Corruption campaign

Virtual Events

The only thing better than Wolf-PAC’s strategy to get a 28th Amendment to fix the corruption in our federal government is the volunteers working together to achieve that goal. Over the next month, and hopefully beyond, our wonderful volunteers will host various virtual events — some educational and some just for fun. 

So while practicing social distancing, join amazing people in a relaxing and fun (virtual) environment. There’s a variety of events to choose from learning to cook, singing karaoke, making cocktails, and more!!

No experience necessary; we simply want to provide you with something to do now that we are all cooped up indoors. Check out all the awesome upcoming events below.

P.S. Click here to submit your idea for a virtual event in the future. If you have any questions and/or need help please email community@wolf-pac.com.

⚠️ All events below are listed in Eastern Standard Time!

 

📚 Wolf-PAC Book Club: Ratification: The People Debate the Constitution, 1787-1788 by Pauline Maier

📕 For the November’s book club, we will be reading The People Debate the Constitution, 1787-1788 by Pauline Maier . Whether you have read this book already or want to learn more about Maier’s dramatic telling of the yearlong battle over ratification, we would like to hear from you! Please join us for Wolf-PAC’s book club meeting on November 1 at 4 pm EST.

This book is available in most libraries, used, new, as an audiobook, and on Kindle and other online reading platforms.

The defining book of the American Revolution era and a winner of the George Washington Book Award, Ratification chronicles the pivotal moments and key figures in transforming the US Constitution from an idea into a transformational document and the Constitutional Convention into a working government.

When the delegates left the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in September 1787, the new Constitution they had written was no more than a proposal. Elected conventions in at least nine of the thirteen states would have to ratify it before it could take effect. There was reason to doubt whether that would happen. The document we revere today as the foundation of our country’s laws, the cornerstone of our legal system, was hotly disputed at the time. Some Americans denounced the Constitution for threatening the liberty that Americans had won at great cost in the Revolutionary War. One group of fiercely patriotic opponents even burned the document in a raucous public demonstration on the Fourth of July.

In this splendid new history, Pauline Maier tells the dramatic story of the yearlong battle over ratification that brought such famous founders as Washington, Hamilton, Madison, Jay, and Henry together with less well-known Americans who sometimes eloquently and always passionately expressed their hopes and fears for their new country. Men argued in taverns and coffeehouses; women joined the debate in their parlors; broadsides and newspaper stories advocated various points of view and excoriated others. In small towns and counties across the country people read the document carefully and knew it well. Americans seized the opportunity to play a role in shaping the new nation. Then the ratifying conventions chosen by “We the People” scrutinized and debated the Constitution clause by clause.

Although many books have been written about the Constitutional Convention, this is the first major history of ratification. It draws on a vast new collection of documents and tells the story with masterful attention to detail in a dynamic narrative. Each state’s experience was different, and Maier gives each its due even as she focuses on the four critical states of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Virginia, and New York, whose approval of the Constitution was crucial to its success.

The New Yorker Gilbert Livingston called his participation in the ratification convention the greatest transaction of his life. The hundreds of delegates to the ratifying conventions took their responsibility seriously, and their careful inspection of the Constitution can tell us much today about a document whose meaning continues to be subject to interpretation. Ratification is the story of the founding drama of our nation, superbly told in a history that transports readers back more than two centuries to reveal the convictions and aspirations on which our country was built.

🎬🍿 Wolf-PAC Movie Night – Whose Vote Counts, Explained – Episode 2

🍿 Join us for Wolf-PAC (not quite a movie) Movie Night as we watch the second episode in the Whose Vote Counts, Explained Netflix series.  The plan is we all jump on Zoom at 8pm ET and then start watching the docuseries independently.

Episode 2, Can You Buy an Election?, briefly covers how money in politics became a problem, what damage the problem is doing, and solutions to the problem.  The movie features Larry Lessig (Harvard University), Ted Olson (conservative super lawyer) Ciara Torres-Spellisey (Brennan Center), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district).

The episode also deserves a critical eye from Wolf-PAC members, because it does not mention an Article V convention.  The episode is 25 minutes and we hope to have a candid conversation afterwords about what worked in the episode and how we can get the word out, so an Article V convention can be offered as a solution in future program.

Is Whose Vote Counts, Explained: Limited Series (2020) on Netflix Netherlands?

Want to join the discussion and also attend The Growing Stronger Together weekly call.  No problem!  Just stream the episode when you have time and join us after the call for the discussion!

🎲GAME NIGHT – Among Us

🕶Join your crewmates in a multiplayer game of teamwork and betrayal!

Play online or over local wifi with 4-10 players as you attempt to hold your spaceship together and return back to civilization. But beware…as there may be an alien impostor aboard!

One crewmate has been replaced by a parasitic shapeshifter. Their goal is to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. The Impostor will sabotage the ship, sneak through vents, deceive, and frame others to remain anonymous and kill off the crew.

While everyone is fixing up the ship, no one can talk to maintain anonymity. Once a body is reported, the surviving crew will openly debate who they think The Impostor is. The Impostor’s goal is to pretend that they are a member of the crew. If The Impostor is not voted off, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another body is found. If The Impostor is voted off, the crew wins!
