Special Pre-Screening of Inequality for All

Posted by bens at Sep 17, 2013 10:45 PM |

Please join us at 7 p.m. on September 23rd for a special pre-screening of INEQUALITY FOR ALL, a documentary feature film where Robert Reich— Secretary of Labor under President Clinton, revered professor, charismatic pundit and author of 13 books—demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy.  

In this inconvenient truth for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us. INEQUALITY FOR ALL allows viewers to start with little or no understanding of what it means for the U.S. to be economically imbalanced, and walk away with a comprehensive and significantly deeper sense of the issue and what can be done about it.

Watch the trailer.

EVENT: Special preview screening of the documentary film INEQUALITY FOR ALL. With Robert Reich as our guide, the feature film explores the causes and consequences of the widening income gap in America and asks what it means to the future of our economy and our nation. 

WHEN: Monday, September 23, 2013, 7 p.m., Doors open at 6 p.m.

WHERE: Harvard Exit Theatre, 807 East Roy at Harvard, Seattle, WA 98102
