Meatless Monday Movie Series: Poverty, Inc.
Join us for this installment of the Meatless Monday Movie Series - vegan snacks and beverages provided.
From TOMS Shoes to international adoptions, farm subsidies to foreign aid, this critique of international development encourages us to re-think poverty. The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better.
Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change.
Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore.
The film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?
