WHEN:
Thursday, January 30, 2014, 6:30 – 9:00 P.M.  
WHERE:

WHY:
“Inequality for All” is a documentary that follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he looks to raise awareness of the country's widening economic gap. Robert Reich, professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member, demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. He uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects everyone.
 
“It is unconscionable that many hardworking Americans are not able to achieve the American Dream due to policies that increase inequality,” said Congressman Mike Honda. “Robert Reich’s new film, Inequality for All, highlights the growing divide in opportunities between the top 1% and middle-class Americans, and suggests ways we can take action and enact responsible policies that benefit working families.”
