From the producers: "Narrated by Matt Damon, this feature-length documentary explores the growing privatization of public schools and the resulting impact on America’s most vulnerable children. Filmed in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Nashville and other cities, Backpack Full of Cash takes viewers through the tumultuous 2013-14 school year, exposing the world of corporate-driven education “reform” where public education -- starved of resources -- hangs in the balance."

Note about the date for this event: We apologize for scheduling this film showing on Yom Kippur. We are regretfully aware that this makes it impossible for many to attend.  There was extremely limited availability to screen the film at this location before the end of the calendar year. Raise Your Hand does plan to schedule additional screenings in Chicago which will be posted as soon as we have them finalized.”
