NASPA’s Lead Initiative is excited to share with you an opportunity to participate in a simultaneous screening of U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich’s film, Inequality for All at campuses across the country. This film, honored at Sundance and other film festivals, highlights income inequality in America and challenges all of us to consider how we can protect the American worker and the middle class.
The event is going to take place on Thursday, February 20, 2014, when campuses all over the U.S. will simultaneously screen the film at 5 p.m. EST. Following the film, Robert Reich has agreed to do a national webcast at 6:30 p.m. EST and answer questions from students.
The only cost for a campus to participate is to have the institution’s library purchase the film at a reduced rate ($250, as compared to $400), which then can be used anytime on campus later on for classes, special showings, etc. Participating campuses will be provided with a screening toolkit that includes a discussion guide and promotional materials. We will work with you to organize questions and comments through twitter and social media to participate in the dialogue with other campuses around the country.
What: National screening of Inequality for All, followed by live webcast conversation with Robert Reich
Where: On your campus; live webcast from San Francisco State University
When: Thursday, February 20, 2014 beginning at 5 p.m. EST with webcast at 6:30 p.m. EST
