As part of a broader campaign to bring light to the new faces of poverty and the aftermath of the recession, national  non-profit Sojourners has produced "The Line," documenting the real life stories of people across the country living at or below the poverty line.

The 30-minute film uncovers the emerging and the entrenched faces of poverty in our country, including

  • the suburban former banker, who now relies on a food pantry

  • an aging career fisherman, whose shrimping business has been devastated by the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast

  • a white collar worker disabled by a head-first fall down the stairs at the train station

Come see the film that is sweeping the country, waking people up to the new face of poverty in America.

Sojourners created this compelling documentary and hoped for 100 screenings. They’ve now had more than 2000 screenings!  Come see why !
