Join Milwaukee Students for a Democratic Society for the final installment of our "Destroy Rape Culture" film series.  We will be showing "The Line: Where is the Line of Consent?"  

The Line (2009) is written and directed by filmmaker, media strategist, social justice activist, and survivor Nancy Schwartzman.  The film explores the issue of consent, the burden of blame, and the trouble society has distinguishing the two.  It chronicles the experience of a young Nancy Schwartzman who after a one-night stand gone terribly wrong decides to confront her attacker using a hidden camera to record the conversation.  Featuring interviews from sex workers, survivors, and activists about justice, accountability, and today's "rape culture," asks the question: where is the line defining consent? 

Sponsored by: Students for a Democratic Society, The Step by Step Collective, Youth Empowered in the Struggle, The Women's Resource Center and more. 




Join Milwaukee Students for a Democratic Society as we kick off our Destroy Rape Culture film series. We will be showing "The Invisible War", the first in a series of documentaries SDS we are airing throughout the semester to educate students on the epidemic of blaming the victims of rape in America.

The Invisible War (2012) documents the ongoing crisis of rape within the US military. According to the Defense Department, in the year 2011 alone, 22,800 violent sex crimes occurred within the US military...
and 1 in 5 women and 1 in 4 men in the service had been sexually assaulted. Statistics like these are extremely low as most rape cases go unreported often because the survivor is discouraged from reporting the incident by their assailant, who tends to be a superior officer. The Invisible War exposes the laziness of the US government to bring justice to survivors of rape in the military and its failure to accurately report it.

Sponsored by: Students for a Democratic Society, The Step by Step Collective, the UWM Women's Resource Center, and more to come.

Join Students for a Democratic Society as we host a panel discussion on FBI repression and drone warfare. The panel will consist of Chicago anti-war and anti-FBI repression activists Joe Iosbaker and Kait McIntyre. Iosobaker is a member of the United National Anti-War Coalition, and one of 23 activists whose homes were raided and ransacked by the FBI back in 2010 for their work as anti-war and international solidarity activists. McIntyre is an anti-war and anti-drone activist and SDS alumni.

In response to the FBI raids, the Committee to Stop FBI Repression was formed to defend targets of FBI grand juries and witch hunts. Iosobaker will be discussing the progress of the current CSFR campaign against FBI repression while McIntyre will speak on the Chicago anti-drone campaign against Boeing Industries.
