The Unitarian Universalist Society: East (UUS:E) will host a film and discussion: “Michael Moore’s Where to Invade Next?” on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. In Michael Moore’s most subversive documentary, he “invades” nine countries and discovers how they have solved problems that elude the United States.

The film is two hours; stay for discussion if you like. The program will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Society: East located at 153 Vernon Street West, Manchester, CT.
