Unity Commission hosts screening of Epix series "America Divided"

Saturday, April 22, 2017

The Citizens’ Unity Commission is launching a series of screenings that are designed to encourage conversations about conflicts that separate us, the values that unite us, and our triumphs over adversity, no matter our race or class. “America Divided” consists of several episodes that premiered on Epix in September, 2016 and cut to the heart of the inequality crisis, exploring life-and-death struggles around the economic, social, and political divide. In a country that is often divided, the “America Divided” series will remind us that our stories unite us. Screenings are Saturday, April 22; Saturday, May 6; Saturday, May 20; and Saturday, June 10. Register today and join the conversation!
