Washington, D.C. — On Tuesday, March 11, HBO, The Shriver Report, and the Center for American Progress will host an exclusive premiere screening of the HBO documentary film, “Paycheck to Paycheck.” Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) will give opening remarks, and a panel discussion with the filmmakers and subject of the film, Katrina Gilbert, will follow the screening.

This is the story of our time: how 42 million American women and the 28 million children who depend on them are living in poverty or on the brink of it. From Maria Shriver’s multi-platform The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From The Brink comes a film that offers a deeply personal, unvarnished, and moving story of the life of Katrina Gilbert, a single mom, struggling to get ahead but constantly getting knocked back by a system that almost seems designed to see her fail.


Featured speaker:
Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT)

Opening remarks:
Karen Skelton, CEO and editor-in-chief, The Shriver Report
Nancy Abraham, senior vice president of documentary programming, HBO

Katrina Gilbert, subject of the film
