The Raben Group Film Series Presents: Unequal Justice: The Relentless Rise of the 1% Court

November 27, 2012 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

 

Narrated by renowned journalist Katrina vanden Huevel, editor of The Nation, Alliance for Justice's new documentary, Unequal Justice, examines the pro-big-business agenda of the Supreme Court and the consequences for ordinary Americans. Through interviews with experts and people affected by recent Supreme Court decisions, the film shows how the Court’s pro-corporate bias weakens the core concept of fairness at the heart of American law.
