Please join us for a special screening of Robert Reich’s documentary film, Inequality for All, followed by a discussion, on February 26, 2014, 10:00am-1:00pm, at the MA State House/Gardner Auditorium. This event, which is free and open to the public, is part of a national 50-state capital screening tour to mark the 50th Anniversary of the War on Poverty.

Inequality for All tackles one of the most serious issues of our time: the widening income inequality in our nation and its consequences. (To view the movie trailer visit: www.inequalityforall.com.)

In a post-screening forum, a panel of experts will engage the audience in a discussion of, e.g., structural causes and manifestations of income inequality; racial, gender and class-related barriers to economic opportunities; the consequences of deteriorating anti-poverty and social safety net programs that stabilize struggling families; and the devastating, long-term impact of the widening income gap on our entire economy. In addition, there will be a focus on policies to address the widening economic gap and proposals to advance economic fairness, opportunity and stability.
