Inequality For All

This week, the U.S. Census Bureau confirmed that income inequality in the United States remains at record levels. In 2012, the top 5 percent of households received 22 percent of all income in the country - a share that has climbed steadily over the past three decades. Prominent economists have shown that income inequality is now greater than it was in 1928, the eve of the Great Depression.

An important new documentary, Inequality for All, explores the causes and consequences of growing economic inequality. Opening on Friday, September 27, Inequality for All features Robert Reich, professor of public policy at the University of California at Berkeley and former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration. The film won the Special Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival and the Audience Award for Best Documentary Film at the Traverse City Film Festival.



We urge you to check out this film and learn more about the wide-ranging implications of rising inequality. At Voices, we believe that growing economic inequality will deny more and more children the opportunities they need to reach their full potential. To build a brighter future for our country, we must take action to strengthen families' economic security and invest in creating opportunities for all children beginning at birth.

In the Chicago area, Inequality for All will play at Landmark's Century Centre Cinema in Chicago and Landmark's Renaissance Place Cinema in Highland Park.
