Wednesday, December 13 at 6:30pm @ basement room of the building that houses Jobs with Justice (1500 NE Irving St.).
Sleep Dealer is a political science-fiction film that won awards at the Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals of 2008. It’s a well liked film that has important lessons/explorations for our politics, in the areas of immigration, globalization, division of labor, and more. A brief update/discussion on NAFTA will be had with those in attendance.
