American manufacturing employment has been on the decline for decades, unleashing a devastating effect on our local and national economies. Fortunately, people are making a difference by doing their part in their local communities. Be inspired by individual and corporate efforts highlighted in this new critically acclaimed documentary.
This is not just a movie screening, but an event.
The City of Schenectady in conjunction with area stakeholders will be hosting this important community event. Which includes the local debut of the American Made Movie followed by a panel discussion with influential state-wide and local economic development stakeholders. The panel discussion will be moderated by Jack Aernecke and will offer an opportunity for attendees to propose questions related to the state of manufacturing in Schenectady and beyond.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Schenectady based YouthBuild program by providing a onetime scholarship for a program participant that plans on attending and enrolling in a Manufacturing Technology program at Schenectady County Community College.
