The New Bedford Coalition to Save Our Schools will be hosting a screening of "Backpack Full of Cash" to highlight the role charter schools, privatization, and funding cuts have had in devastating public schools, and the most vulnerable children who rely on them. The film also shows a model for improving schools – a well-resourced public school system in Union City, New Jersey, where poor kids are getting a high quality education without charters or vouchers.

Lunch will be served.
