The Rotary Club of Five Points Denver is pleased to host a screening of the film The Last Bill, a Senator’s Story, a behind-the-scenes documentary of State Senator and Rotarian Linda Newell’s real-life story carrying bills through the legislature (Click HERE for the trailer).  The film will be followed by an open dialogue around the issues of peaceful problem solving and healthy communication in government.  This event is one of many happening around the state during Colorado’s Conflict Resolution Month in October.  Seating is limited. A portion of the proceeds will support Senator Newell’s education initiative, developing academically aligned film curriculum guides to be used in K-12 schools across the state.  Increasing the civic knowledge of youth and the civic engagement of our citizenry has never been more important.  Many people lack knowledge or experience with the role, process, and positions in government. What better way than to show them from an insider’s view?  Additional proceeds from the event will benefit the Rotary Club of Five Points Denver programs targeting neighborhood schools, community, and educational organizations as well as Rotary’s End Polio Now foundation and Shots for Tots and Teens. This event will take place at the Posner Center for International Development in the Five Points neighborhood.  A meet-and-greet happy hour will begin at 6:00 pm.  The film will start promptly at 7:00 pm and a Q&A session with Senator Newell will follow. The event will conclude at 8:00 pm.
