"Inequality for All" Free Movie Showing

From Robert Reich, former US Secretary of Labor, comes a humorous and enlightening exposé on America's widening income gap.

This award winning film is a must-see for any who cares about our economy. In January 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared a “war on poverty.” Fifty years later, we’re seeing a war on the poor—and the middle class. Poverty is returning to levels seen a half-century ago, with no end in sight.

This will be the first showing of this film in the area. A discussion will follow the viewing.
