Title: IN SERVICE TO AMERICA
Movie ID: VT4327.2
Movie Number: 4327
Description: By 1967, poverty warriors increase the sophistication of their tactics at the same time that a number of outspoken opponents rise to national prominence. This episode tells the stories of Legal Services and VISTA, two programs that combined individual action with the idea of volunteerism. Lawyers team up with migrant far workers in California to fight for better working conditions and benefits, and VISTA volunteers and coal miners unite against strip mining companies in the Appalachians. Both stories raise significant questions about activities the government funds in the name of fighting poverty.
