It is a document which, unfortunately has fallen upon hard times, rarely referenced, and seemingly subsumed every July 4th by beans, beer and baseball. Yet it is a passionate literary work of revolutionary inspiration. Join us for an enlightening discussion!

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. This film pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? Moderators Scott Gray and Sonya Wulff will introduce the film and lead us in a discussion immediately following the screening.
