"Maxed Out"

On Wednesday April 15 at 7:00pm in the Alumni Board Room, join non-partisan student organization Democracy Matters in viewing the award-winning documentary “Maxed out.”

“Maxed Out takes viewers on a journey deep inside the American style of debt, where things seem fine as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time. With coverage that spans from small American towns all the way to the White House, the film shows how the modern financial industry really works, explains the true definition of "preferred customer" and tells us why the poor are getting poorer while the rich keep getting richer. Hilarious, shocking and incisive, Maxed Out paints a picture of a national nightmare which is all too real for most of us."

Following the documentary will be a short discussion and information on how you can take action. All are welcome. For more information regarding the documentary visit
