Neighbor-to-Neighbor is excited to be hosting a viewing and discussion of Sojurners' new documentary film The Line.
About us: Neighbor-to-Neighbor is a coalition of faith-based and community partners working to prevent homelessness of families in the Cockeysville/Timonium area by assisting in the development of skills needed to achieve financial independence.
About "The Line": As part of a broader campaign to bring light to the new faces of poverty and the aftermath of the recession, national Christian non-profit Sojourners has produced a documentary film called The Line. The 30-minute film uncovers the emerging and entrenched faces of poverty in our country — such as the suburban former banker, who now relies on a food pantry; to an aging career fisherman, whose shrimping business has been devastated by the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast.
About the Event: Along with the viewing, we are hoping to spark meaningful discussion about the effects of, and solution to, poverty in the 21st century. All are welcome to attend. Come for the film, stay for the discussion. We will provide dinner.
