In partnership with A Just Harvest, Congregational United Church of Christ will host a free screening of the award-winning documentary "Inequality for All" at 1pm on Wednesday, April 23. A lively discussion led by congresswoman Jan Schakowsky will follow the viewing.
"Inequality for All" explores the U.S. economic crisis and the growing gap between the rich and the poor. UC Berkeley professor, former Secretary of Labor, renowned author, and economic policy expert Robert Reich narrates this in-depth look at the class and labor issues that have changed the dynamics of modern democracy, opportunity, and the American Dream. Directed by Jacob Kornbluth, "Inequality for All" earned both the 2013 Best Documentary Film Award at the Traverse City Film Festival and the 2013 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Prize for Achievement in Filmmaking.
As Reich explains, "One of the best ways to help people understand the challenges we face, is with a movie that can grab an audience and move them to action. And this movie will do exactly that" (http://inequalityforall.com/about-the-film/).
Congregational United Church of Christ will present a matinee showing of "Inequality for All" at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 23. A discussion, moderated by congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, will follow the screening. The event is co-sponsored by A Just Harvest, a non-profit organization that advocates for economic justice.
