For our March Link-up on March 1, we will be joining Indiana Coalition for Public Education–Monroe County for a free, ticketed screening of the acclaimed documentary, Backpack Full of Cash.
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.
This is a ticketed event, so, to get your FREE ticket go to the Event Page and click on the green Register Button. Seating is limited for this event (as of this writing there are only 41 tickets left), so be sure to reserve your ticket soon.

Come hear a power point presentation by Board Member Chaim Julian about wage theft, a crime that is constantly under the radar. The presentation will be followed by a discussion with Liz Feitl, the AFL-CIO Community Service Liaison,with United Way of Monroe County. This crime is one that people do not talk about, but we need to talk about it and Liz has been on the front line dealing with this in our community. This topic is especially timely, because if the US Chamber of Commerce and its allies get their way in front of the US Supreme Court wage theft could become rampant throughout the country.
Prior to the program DFMC Members will elect DFMC Officers and Board of Directors
