Join the Illinois Policy Institute for an exclusive advance screening of this new documentary that exposes how the CTU has seized power over Chicago Public Schools to the detriment of kids, parents and the community. 
Proudly radical, explicitly political and confrontational to its core, the CTU has revolutionized the American labor movement. But as the union tightens its grip on Illinois and exports its influence nationwide, "Local 1" reveals the true cost for students, parents and teachers – and provides hope for a brighter future.
Here’s where it’s screening near you:

And here’s what you need to know about the screenings:
