SCREEN JUSTICE 3… Spring 2009
Giving Voice to Smart Socially-Conscious Films
A Day's Work, A Day’s Pay (2001:57 mins.), by Kathy Leichter and Jonathan Skurnick, follows the experiences of three welfare recipients in New York City from 1997 to 2000 as they participate in the largest welfare-to-work program in the nation. When forced to work at city jobs for well below the prevailing wage and deprived of the chance to go to school, these individuals decide to fight back, demanding programs that will actually help them move off of welfare and into jobs.  A film that highlights the real-life impact that social policy has on human beings and the effort required for poor and working people to transform themselves from victims of the System to fully empowered citizens who take control of their own lives.
Followed by a post-screening discussion with guest speaker Mr. Charles Jones, Director, Project Empowerment, Department of Employment, DC Government.
Reception 5:45pm, Program begins 6:15pm
