You're invited to a FREE showing of the film

Poverty Outlaw
Wednesday, July 14th, at 7:00 p.m.
		at
The Lucy Parsons Center,
549 Columbus Avenue, Boston.

Poverty Outlaw documents the work of the Kensington Welfare Rights Union
(KWRU) in the early and mid-1990’s.  Based in Philadelphia’s most
impoverished area, KWRU is a multi-racial group of low-income men and women
refusing to accept the injustices of poverty.  The film documents their
struggles, including an attempted takeover of an abandoned building to form
a
community center, and the establishment of a tent city to force the city to
confront poverty and homelessness.  KWRU continues its work today several
years after the making of the film, and has worked with activists here in
Massachusetts and around the country.

The Lucy Parsons Center is located near the intersection of Massachusetts
and
Columbus Avenues, near Harriet Tubman House.  It is easily accessible from
the Green and Orange Lines and the #1 bus.  When walking from the Symphony
(Green Line) or Mass Ave (Orange Line) T stops, head toward Columbus Ave and
take a left; the Center is about 2 blocks down.  For more information,
please
call (617) 267-6272.

Kids are welcome, but please call us ahead of time at (617) 267-6272 so that
we can make arrangements.  Thanks!
