About March’s film: After losing her job as a hotel worker in Las Vegas, Ruby Duncan joined a welfare rights group of mothers who defied notions of the “welfare queen.” In a fight for guaranteed income, Ruby and other equality activists took on the Nevada mob in organizing a massive protest that shut down Caesars Palace.
The film will make its debut on OETA/PBS beginning Monday, March 20th.
Indie Lens Pop-Up is a FREE neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Coming next month, see “Free Chol Soo Lee” with free admission on Wed 4/5, 7:00p
