We are pleased to announce the next community screenings of Robert Reich's new film on income inequality, "Inequality for All". Our community screenings at UT and Owens of February 20 were viewed by approximately 100 and 80 attendees, respectively. We hope to continue to spread the message at the upcoming screening on March 13 at the Main Library's McMaster Center.

We thank our partners at the University of Toledo and Owens Community College, who have obtained educational licenses for community screenings, for making this film available to the community. Additional partners collaborating on this project include Toledo Area Jobs with Justice and Toledo Move to Amend.
"Inequality for All" is a call to arms and organizing tool for our community, which has the unenviable distinction of being No. 1 in the rate of increase of those suffering in poverty among America's largest metro areas. Placing this in the context of state-wide efforts to establish Right-to-Work legislation, which has the potential to deepen the income divide, shows how important it is for our community to hear Dr. Reich's message in "Inequality for All".
I also wanted to let you all know about a related event organized independently of our efforts that will be taking place on March 27. This will be a town hall meeting entitled "Faith Conversations on Income Inequality" at University Church, 4747 Hill Ave, Toledo from 6:30-8:30. It might be safe to say this issue is brewing in the public domain.
