The bus is back: American Made Movie tonight in DC

Posted by TGarland on 04/03/2014

Think way back to 2013, and you may recall the American Made Movie bus tour stopped at Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Well ... we can't speak for the bus, but the movie is back! The filmmakers behind American Made Movie are in D.C. tonight. And this time, they'll be up at the Capitol's Congressional Visitor Center for a free screening of their feature-length documentary.

It's a good one. American Made Movie tracks the decline of U.S. manufacturing, and offers suggestions on how to bring it back. AAM's own Scott Paul is featured throughout the film.

Following a brief introduction, the film will begin at 5:45 pm. It runs approximately 80 minutes, and afterward Paul will join a panel that will take questions and share thoughts on how to jumpstart America's manufacturing sector. Other panelists include:

Again, this event is free. If you have any questions or would like to RSVP, please contact Brendan Larkin in the office of Rep. Paul Tonko (NY-20) at Brendan.Larkin@mail.house.gov.

What: Make it in America: A Discussion on American Manufacturing
When: Thursday, April 3rd at 5:30 pm
Where: Congressional Visitors Center Orientation Theater South

We hope to see you tonight!
