Documentary Showing: "DREAM ON"

Join the Citizen Action Organizing Cooperative for a free showing of DREAM ON, a documentary that explores both the roots of the American Dream and the reality of our country's ever-increasing income inequality today. This will be somewhat of a "kick-off" for our new issue team in our Cooperative interested in working on issues of economic justice. In other words, you'll find out how YOU can take action on the issues in the film after it's over!

DREAM ON investigates the perilous state of the American Dream after decades of rising income inequality and declining economic mobility. In an epic road trip, political comedian John Fugelsang retraces the journey of Alexis de Tocqueville, whose study of our young country in 1831 came to define America as a place where anyone, of any background, could climb the ladder of economic opportunity. Following in the Frenchman's footsteps, Fugelsang asks whether the optimistic spirit of the American Dream that Tocqueville popularized is alive and well in the twenty-first century, or whether George Carlin was right when he famously quipped, "It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it."
