Moral Movies Asheville: Inequality For All

 

Join us for Moral Movies in Asheville
Friday, July 25, 7 p.m.
Ferguson Auditorium at AB Tech, 340 Victoria Rd., Asheville NC 28801

The NC-NAACP, Working Films, and state and local partner organizations are concluding the four month Moral Movies Film Series, with nine screenings of the acclaimed documentary Inequality for All. The film features Robert Reich - professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member - as he demonstrates how the widening income gap is having a devastating impact on the American economy.

The Asheville screening will take place Friday, July 25 at 7 p.m. at Ferguson Auditorium at AB Tech, 340 Victoria Rd., Asheville NC 28801. The Moral Movies Film Series kicked off in April of this year in response to and in partnership with many of the leading organizations involved in the growing Moral Monday movement led by the North Carolina NAACP. Overtime, the series has connected audiences across the state with dozens of organizations working to support quality education, working families, and civic participation.  The screenings pair facilitated dialogue with opportunities for audiences to get involved in the issues at hand.

Working Films, a national nonprofit and nonpartisan organization based in Wilmington, NC has coordinated the series. Working Films builds partnerships between nonfiction media-makers, nonprofit organizations, businesses, educators and advocates to advance community-based and policy solutions that address social, economic, and environmental challenges facing communities across the nation. Co-director Molly Murphy says, “Working Films was inspired to pursue this series by the unprecedented civic engagement sparked by the Moral Monday demonstrations that began at the state capitol last year. As an organization that has worked across the U.S. and internationally for over a decade to use film to raise awareness and catalyze community and civic involvement, we saw an opportunity to use great films to inform and inspire citizen participation pressing issues in our home state of North Carolina.”
