SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University joins more than 200 other educational institutions nationwide during a simultaneous screening of the award-winning documentary Inequality for All 5 p.m. Thursday, February 20, in Teacher Education and Technology Center Room 153.
A live question-and-answer webcast with Robert Reich, former U.S. secretary of labor and film host, follows.
In the wake of the U.S. economic crisis, the widening gap between the rich and the poor has gained unprecedented public awareness. The 400 richest Americans now own more wealth than the bottom 150 million combined. Many see this disparity as a threat to democracy, according to the film.
The film was a Special Jury Prize winner at the Sundance Film Festival and earned the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Traverse City Film Festival.
