FVCC and AAUW Present "Inequality for All" Film Screening

Flathead Valley Community College and the Kalispell branch of American Association of University Women invite the public to a free screening of the 2013 film “Inequality for All” on October 8 at 7 p.m. in the Arts and Technology Building on the FVCC Kalispell campus.

 

The film features former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who makes a compelling case about the serious crisis the United States faces due to the widening economic gap between the ultra-wealthy “1 percent” and the struggling middle class. Reich asks the provocative question, “How much inequality can we tolerate and still have an economy that works for everyone and still have a functioning democracy?”

 

Following the 90-minute film, a panel of local economic professionals will address the implications of the country’s widening wealth gap on Northwest Montana’s economy. Gregg Davis, Ph.D., FVCC professor of economics, Brad Eldredge, Ph.D., FVCC executive director of institutional research, assessment and planning, and Kim Morisaki, who oversees special projects and business development at Montana West Economic Development, will discuss the film and field questions from the audience.

 

The event is open to the public, and registration is not required to attend.  The film is rated PG.  For more information about the film, visit www.inequalityforall.com. For more information about the film screening, contact the FVCC Continuing Education Center at 756-3832 or ceinfo@fvcc.edu.
