Virtual Events - Wolf-PAC

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 Movie Night – The Swamp [RSVP]

🎫 Join us for a Wolf-PAC virtual movie night. The main feature of this event will be The Swamp on HBO. Directed by Daniel DiMauro and Morgan Pehme (Get Me Roger Stone), The Swamp provides a look behind the curtain of Washington politics by following three renegade Republican Congressmen — Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Thomas Massie (R-KY), and Ken Buck (R-CO) — over the course of a pivotal year in politics as they champion President Trump’s call to “drain the swamp.”

With unique behind-the-scenes access to the inner workings of the House amid major breaking news events, including the Robert Mueller hearing and Presidential impeachment proceedings, the film presents a revealing look at the core democratic institution of American government and demonstrates the breadth and grip of a system that rewards fundraising above all else, plaguing Congress on both sides of the aisle.

Important–> The plan is for each one of us to stream the movie at home (on your own screens), we will all start and watch at the same time. Once it’s completed we will use Zoom to discuss afterward. We can also use Zoom to chat during the movie. The Swamp premiers August 4th at 8:00 PM ET on HBO. On-demand viewing begins on August 5th.  If you don’t have HBO you can sign up for a free seven-day trial at https://www.hbomax.com/subscribe.

Hope to see you for our movie night!!

📚 Wolf-PAC Book Club: America Compromised by Lawrence Lessig [RSVP]

📕 For the September book club, we will be reading America Compromised by Lawrence Lessig. Whether you have read this book already or want to learn more about Lessig’s sweeping indictment of contemporary American institutions and the corruption that besets them, we would like to hear from you! Please join us for Wolf-PAC’s book club meeting on September 6th at 4 pm EST.

So begins Lawrence Lessig’s sweeping indictment of contemporary American institutions and the corruption that besets them. We can all see it—from the selling of Congress to special interests to the corporate capture of the academy. Something is wrong. It’s getting worse.

And it’s our fault. What Lessig shows, brilliantly and persuasively, is that we can’t blame the problems of contemporary American life on bad people, as our discourse all too often tends to do. Rather, he explains, “We have allowed core institutions of America’s economic, social, and political life to become corrupted. Not by evil souls, but by good souls. Not through crime, but through compromise.” Every one of us, every day, making the modest compromises that seem necessary to keep moving along, is contributing to the rot at the core of American civic life. Through case studies of Congress, finance, the academy, the media, and the law, Lessig shows how institutions are drawn away from higher purposes and toward money, power, quick rewards—the first steps to corruption.

Lessig knows that a charge so broad should not be levied lightly and that our instinct will be to resist it. So he brings copious, damning detail gleaned from years of research, building a case that is all but incontrovertible: America is on the wrong path. If we don’t acknowledge our own part in that and act now to change it, we will hand our children a less perfect union than we were given. It will be a long struggle. This book represents the first steps.
