Poverty in America —It’s not what you think

Overflow Coffee Bar, 1550 S. State St., in partnership with World Vision is presenting the documentary film
The Line May 28, 2013 at 7 p.m. The documentary will be screened at The Venue 1550 at the State St. address.

The Line documents the stories of people across the country living at or below the poverty line. They have goals. They have children. They work hard. They are people like you and me. Across America, millions are struggling every day to make it above The Line.

The core purpose of World Vision in Chicago is to bring together passionate people who share a desire for serving with the poor. World Vision’s programs, global reach, and opportunities to engage are available right here in Chicago. Today, World Vision works to serve and partner with more than 60,000 people each year from almost every Chicago neighborhood and across Chicago’s suburban communities.

The film is 40 minutes long so there will be plenty of time for discussion (meeting may end before 9pm).

Transit/Parking – Overflow encourages the use of public transit (Red Line, #29, #62 and other buses are close), limited parking is available in the rear of the building on a first come first served basis. Bring $3 for your spot. No one will be in the lot to take it. You can pay at the ticket check-in table.
