Produced and directed by Emmy award-winning filmmakers Joe and Harry Gantz, American Winter is a documentary feature film that follows the personal stories of families struggling in the aftermath of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
Years after the recession began, millions of families are struggling to meet their basic needs, and many formerly middle class families are finding themselves in financial crisis, and needing assistance for the first time in their lives.
Meanwhile, the social safety net that was created to help people in difficult times has been weakened by massive budget cuts, creating a perfect storm of greater need and fewer resources to help families in trouble.
Filmed over the course of one winter in Portland, Oregon, American Winter presents an intimate and emotionally evocative snapshot of the state of our economy as it is playing out in many American families.
The debate will be moderated by: Johnny Barnes, Esq, Anise Jenkins, and Lino Stracuzzi, DC Statehood Green Party.

Have you heard about moveDC? It's the District Department of Transportation (DDOT)'s initiative to put together a coordinated, multimodal long range transportation plan, addressing all modes of transportation in the District.
The moveDC plan will incorporate livable streets, roadways, bicycles, pedestrians, transit, freight, maritime, and railroads, as well as an implementation element.
DDOT is doing a lot to encourage public participation and input into the plan. On February 9, they held a day-long public idea exchange, and are now transitioning into a series of four public input meetings across the city.
moveDC is the most important opportunity we'll have to influence the shape of transportation in D.C., so if you care about these issues, please let us know if you can attend by RSVPing with CSG.
