We would like to invite you to the screening of 'Crossing the American Crises' in partnership with RESULTS on Thursday 21 March, 7 pm at Wild Goose Creative -  see attached flyer for further details!
 
'Crossing The American Crises' is the latest screening in the Films For Action OH: Human Rights Film Series. The film looks at poverty in the U.S. since the financial crash. In 2008, filmmakers Michael Fox and Silvia Leindecker traveled across the US to ask Americans about the Crisis. Two years later, they returned to find continuing desperation, but also a renewed sense of hope. 
 
Following the screening, RESULTS will lead a discussion and will explain what can do to support Ohio's poorest citizens in the shadow of sequestration.
