‘Dream On’

A Reel Progress Film Screening and Live Q&A

Dream On” is a documentary that retraces the 1831 journey of Alexis de Tocqueville across the United States, examining the current state of the American dream. Political comedian John Fugelsang leads this tour, capturing the stories of a diverse group of people struggling to get by: senior citizens who have lost their pensions, fast-food workers campaigning for a living wage, and unauthorized immigrants fighting deportation.

Please join the Center for American Progress’ Reel Progress film series for a screening of “Dream On,” the documentary that puts a human face on the endangered American dream. After the screening, there will be a panel discussion that takes a deep dive into how policymakers can revive the American dream, focusing on the structural barriers to economic mobility faced by low-income individuals and amplifying policy solutions to ensure equal access for all. There will also be an opportunity for audience Q&A.

Panelists:
John Fugelsang, Political Comedian and Commentator
Roger Weisberg, Academy Award-Nominated Producer, Director, and Screenwriter

Moderator:
Melissa Boteach, Vice President, Poverty to Prosperity Program, Center for American Progress
