Free Screening - "Inequality for All" and 2015 Kickoff

  • March 13, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Robert Reich's INEQUALITY FOR ALL tells the story of the ever increasing income gap in America. Inequality is a major problem in Washington, DC, which has higher inequality than most major cities. 

Come see the film for free with the DC Fiscal Policy Institute. And, find out how we can use the fiscal year 2015 budget to combat growing inequality in the District of Columbia.

About the film: A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, INEQUALITY FOR ALL features Robert Reich – professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member - as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. 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. The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival!

Please note the No Show Policy:

As always please update your RSVP in advance of the event if your plan has changed. Cancelling less than three hours before an event counts as a "No Show" since it does not provide adequate time to notify the folks on the waiting list. I generally send out my phone number the night before.  If an emergency happens, please call me and let me know. Direct communication is very important as it allows the host to make last-minute adjustments for the capped attendance events.

One "No Show" without a call to me and you will not be able to RSVP to my capped attendance events for three months.  Three "No Shows" and you will not be able to RSVP to my events. Let's give everyone who wants to attend the group events the chance. Thank you for your cooperation.

    A Message from DC Fiscal Policy Institute:

    Thank you for registering to attend tonight's screening of the film, Inequality for All. We're excited to see you tonight, and to share with you ways that you can get involved in the fiscal year 2015 budget process to help reduce inequality in the District of Columbia.

    We released a report on income inequality in DC today. We found that DC has the fourth highest level of income inequality of major cities in the US. Take a look: http://bit.ly/1i84NIw

    Tonight, we'll talk a bit about the report, and how we can start on the road to reducing inequality here in the District. See you tonight!

    Looking forward to tonight. I am not familiar with this venue so please do look out for me inside the auditorium. I will be wearing a leopard coat and a tan hat. I'll also have a meetup sign. I may try to stake out some seats for our group if they are filling fast. Thanks!

    Hi Linda,

    I just confirmed my RSVP. Looking forward to seeing this - and meeting new people.

    Just found out my friend and I can no longer attend.... does anyone want my 2 free tickets? It still looks like you can register for the event but I don't know how full the Auditorium is now.

  • Lena

    Hi all -- We have scheduled a post film discussion for this Friday March 14 at 6:30 p.m. At Teaism in Penn Quarter. This is posted as a regular meet up event on the Culture Club meetup home page. Hope to see lots of you there!

    March 11, 2014

  • Lena

    yes, of course I would be happy to host a post- screening discussion. ( Sorry about the delay, I hadn't seen the reply till now.) Linda, would Friday evening or Saturday afternoon be best for you?

    March 11, 2014

    • Linda

      I sent you an email with more info. Good luck and let me know how it goes!

      March 11, 2014

  • Lena

    Siince this event is a little too late on a weeknight for a discussion after, maybe somebody would like to host a coffee shop/wine bar event a day or two later when we could discuss. With 40 plus people signed up for this event, I'm sure people would show up for a chat about it on a different day. Just a thought....

    March 9, 2014

    • Linda

      there's a thought. Lena, can you host a discussion?

    Hi - I am on the waitlist, but have gone ahead and gotten a ticket from event Brite anyway. With 15 yeses & 24 on the waitlist, this politically progressive event idea is obviously a big hit!! Thanks for organizing this!

    1 · March 9, 2014

    • Linda

      Everyone who gets an eventbrite ticket is going! :) I also added you to our RSVP list. See you there!

  • Rita Mansfield G.

    Seen this already.... quite thought provoking and interesting, considering Robert Reich's insight and stature in the political arena. Leave time to discuss this movie after viewing. Graphs work very well in this work.

    Hi Linda, I've registered with a friend. Are we having a discussion after the film?

    March 1, 2014

    • Linda

      The organizers indicate they may have a panel talk about the 2015 Budget. We as a meetup group won't have a discussion though.
