Clatsop Community College, in partnership with the Lower Columbia Diversity Project, invites community members to attend a free screening of the documentary “Inequality for All” and join in a community discussion facilitated by Chuck Sheketoff from the Oregon Center for Public Policy.
This informative and provocative program will take place on Friday, February 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the CCC Performing Arts Center, 588 16th Street, Astoria. Additional support for this presentation is provided by the Cannery Pier Hotel.
“Inequality for All” was directed by Jacob Kornbluth and features Robert Reich, Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, author of 13 books and Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at UC-Berkeley. The documentary follows Reich as he addresses the economic condition of the middle class and seeks to raise awareness of the country’s widening income gap. For more information regarding the film, visit the film website. The DVD will also be available at the CCC Dora Badollet Library following the February 28 screening.
