Month of March Double Deal! Two movies in one month!
Take Back Your Power delves into a world where energy utilities and governments are fast-tracking “smart” meters. But what if you have a choice? At stake emerging health problems, increased bills and potential loss of privacy. With compelling insight from whistleblowers, researchers, government agents, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, the award-winning documentary Take Back Your Power takes us on a journey to expose corporate and government actions in the name of “smart” and “green.” What you’ll discover will surprise, unsettle and empower you.
Local volunteer activist Liz Doonan will speak to the audience about her own experiences with smart meters and facilitate a discussion with the audience.

Inequality for All features Robert Reich—professor, best selling author, and Clinton cabinet member—as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this Inconvenient Truth for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us.
Following the film a discussion will be facilitated by Konrad Herling, Greenbelt City Council member and long time member of the Eleanor and Franklin D. Roosevelt Democratic Club. This special bonus Reel and Meal is presented in partnership with the Eleanor and Franklin D, Roosevelt Democratic Club.
