**Post film panel discussion moderated by Prof. Tom Maloney (Director, Tanner Center for Nonviolent Human Rights Advocacy) featuring Senator Jim Dabakis, Karen Crompton (Voices of Utah Children), and Prof. Norm Waitzman (Dept. of Economics, University of Utah).
Director Jacob Kornbluth was supposed to be in attendance, but due to unforeseen circumstances he can not make it to Utah in time for this screening. He will be in attendance at our Ogden screening on Thursday, February 20th.

A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, INEQUALITY FOR ALL features Robert Reich—professor, best—selling author, and Clinton cabinet member—as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this INCONVENIENT TRUTH for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us.

Presented in partnership with the University of Utah’s Barbara L. & Norman C. Tanner Center for Nonviolent Human Rights Advocacy.
