Posted: November 16th, 2013
SAULT STE MARIE, Mich. – Lake Superior State University invites the public to a documentary and forum to discuss the widening gap between rich and poor in the United States. “Inequality for All” will be shown at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, in the LSSU Arts Center auditorium.
The documentary follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he speaks to audiences around the country about the widening economic gap between the rich and poor in the wake of the 2007-2008 financial collapse and the rise of the “Occupy” movement. Admission is free.
The film will be followed immediately by a public forum sponsored by the LSSU Political Science Club. LSSU Math Prof. Emeritus Bernie Arbic and LSSU Finance Prof. Gerald Root will serve as initial commentators on the film and its message. Audience members will then be invited to participate in the discussion in a forum that will be moderated by LSSU Prof. of Political Science Gary Johnson.
The film is being sponsored by LSSU’s Upward Bound, LSSU’s Center for Social Research, and the League of Women Voters. -LSSU-
