OSSINING, N.Y. – The Ossining Library will screen “Inequality for All,” a film from former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, in December. The film is a humorous and enlightening exposé on America’s widening income gap.
“One of my most cherished endeavors in recent years is unrelated to local politics — it is the Ossining Documentary & Discussion Series, which I co-founded with a handful of engaged community members. Our committee of volunteers that make these monthly screenings happen is just fantastic. Suzie Ross is our leader, keeping us all on task. Andrea Kimmich-Keyser and Lauren Brois have stepped up as especially remarkable behind-the-scenes organizers. All the members help select films, hang posters, sign in participants, take turns as curator and produce each event together. I am grateful to have the opportunity to moderate the discussion each month. This series epitomizes community members working hard to create a program that enriches Ossining,” says curator Victoria Gearity.
The film will be screened on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at the Budarz Theater in the Ossining Library. Join the event to laugh, learn and ask, “Why are we working longer and harder, yet have more debt and less purchasing power than any generation since the Great Depression?”
Join the Ossining Documentary & Discussion Series for the screening followed by a discussion with panelists Ari Kamen, state political director of the Working Families Party; Julia Solow, community organizer for Community Voices Heard; and Nancy Gutman, adjunct professor of economics, College of Arts & Sciences at New York University.
