Join Read Better Be Better (RBBB) and SOSAZ (Save Our Schools AZ) for a free community screening of Backpack Full of Cash, a documentary about the growing trend of privatizing public education in the United States. "Matt Damon narrates this timely warning about America's public schools, which have fallen into a growing, greedy, and under-regulated system of privatization that is having a devastating impact on our children (IMDB)." The screening will be "movies in the park" style with no formal seating. Beverages and popcorn will be provided by RBBB. Space is limited so RSVP for the event on Eventbrite.Connect us with a new team member and get $50 to Postino Wine Cafe! Be Excellent, Be Kind. That's the RBBB motto!
