Narrated by Cambridge's own Matt Damon, Backpack Full of Cash explores the growing privatization of public schools and the resulting impact on America’s most vulnerable children.

Elected officials, candidates and union representatives will talk about legislative priorities that benefit the many over the few, the value of collective action and why unions matter now more than ever.  

At this point Representative Ken Gordon, 21st Middlesex and Mary Ann Stewart, candidate for the 15th Middlesex have committed to speak.
