“We tend to treat changes in the economy as if they were like the weather—natural phenomena governed by forces beyond our control. Nothing could be further from the truth. We have chosen to live in a society with high unemployment and with income distribution that is becoming medieval. A tiny percentage of Americans owns most of the wealth. Meanwhile millions of willing and able people are without work. This did not just happen. We created this situation.” —Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) President Rev. Peter Morales

Income inequality has become the talk of the nation, as well as one of UUSJ’s primary social justice issues. Would you like to continue the conversation on economic inequality? Borrow a film from UUSJ. “Inequality for All” is a documentary, featuring former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich, raising awareness of the country's widening economic gap. DVD copies of the film are available from UUSJ for use at UU events hosted by our individual members or member congregations. To borrow a copy of the film contact Cynthia Snavely at info@uusj.org or 202-600-9132.
