“See this!


       We’re doing this to ourselves.

       It is madness. 
Mass incarceration.

       Militarized police. Guns for anyone.

     Even 
9 year- old girls. We’re insane.

Inequality for All

Published on October 8th, 2013
inequalposterAt the heart of the film is a simple proposition: what is a good society, and what role does the widening income gap play in the deterioration of our nation’s economic health? We are endeavoring for Inequality for All to be a paradigm-shifting, eye-opening experience for the American public. We want to accurately show through a non-partisan perspective why extreme income inequality is such an important topic for our citizens today and for the future of America.
