Please join us as we view and discuss the 2013 documentary “Inequality for All,” directed by Jacob Kornbluth. “Inequality for All” examines America’s widening income gap between rich and poor, along with the shrinking middle class. Former Labor Secretary under Pres. Bill Clinton, Robert Reich, argues why it benefits all Americans to have a vibrant, thriving middle class and why education is so important. An in-depth panel discussion co-moderated by the Chair of the UMSSW Financial Social Work Initiative (FSWI), Dr. Jodi Jacobson Frey, and Dr. Christine Callahan, Research Lead Specialist, will immediately follow the film. Panelists from both macro and clinical social work perspectives will discuss how economic trends and policies impact our nation both at the societal and individual levels and how social workers can work together to promote empowerment, justice, and a better quality of life. Come see and discuss this film - winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and lauded by film critics as a “Must See Movie” across the nation. Presented by FSWI. Monday, February 3, 2014, 5:15 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. (registration begins at 5 pm), Baltimore, $30, CEUs 3.5, Film view: FREE. While the event is free, pre-registration is required as seating is limited.
