Storming Caesars Palace showcases Vegas activist, Ruby Duncan, and a grassroots movement of moms who fought for basic income guarantee. After losing her job as a hotel worker in Las Vegas, Ruby Duncan joined a welfare rights group of mothers who defied notions of the “welfare queen.” In a fight for guaranteed income, Ruby and other equality activists took on the Nevada mob in organizing a massive protest that shut down Caesars Palace.

The women in Storming Caesars Palace demonstrate that no one is alone when facing hardship. Whether someone is receiving temporary or long-term public assistance, is seeking support, or has no firsthand experience, a screening of Storming Caesars Palace presents an opportunity to have a conversation about economic justice, the value of the social safety net in our democracy and in society, and the need for visionary action to help struggling families today
