Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and Taylor English Host "Monday Night at the Movies"

A dialogue about poverty in America

September 21, 2015

On September 21, 2015, at 6:30 PM the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and Taylor English will host a dialogue about poverty in America, poverty in Atlanta, and the barriers it creates for too many of our neighbors via a one-time screening of the HBO documentary film Paycheck to Paycheck: the Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert.

This second installment in "AVLF at the Movies" film series offers a deeply personal, unvarnished and moving story of Katrina Gilbert, a working single mom of three caught in a system that almost seems designed to see her fail. Katrina’s story illuminates the challenges faced by the 42 million women and the 28 million children who depend on them who are living in poverty or are on the brink of it, the very people helped by AVLF. Following the screening, Katrina Gilbert will join other panelists for an audience Q&A to discuss the issues raised in this powerful documentary.
