AVLF is sponsoring a screening of an HBO documentary called Paycheck to Paycheck on September 21 at Midtown Arts Theater. It's free, it got great reviews, the protagonist will be in the audience!, and it's an important part of the movement on fighting poverty in the US - something I know everyone on this email cares about.
WHAT: A one-time screening of the HBO documentary film Paycheck to Paycheck: the Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert. This 2nd installment in the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation’s “AVLF at the Movies” film series continues a dialogue about poverty in America, poverty in Atlanta, and the barriers it creates for too many of our neighbors. The movie offers a deeply personal, unvarnished and moving story of Katrina Gilbert, a working single mom of three caught in a system that almost seems designed to see her fail. Katrina’s story illuminates the challenges faced by the 42 million women and the 28 million children who depend on them who are living in poverty or are on the brink of it, the very people helped by AVLF. Following the screening, Katrina Gilbert will join other panelists for an audience Q&A to discuss the issues raised in this powerful documentary.
WHEN: Monday, September 21, 2014, 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Midtown Art Cinema – 931 Monroe Drive NE Atlanta, GA 30308
