Nearly 1,500 people registered gatherings to screen and discuss HBO’s Paycheck to Paycheck, and we asked 2 of those impressive women to join Maria, Oprah and Katrina to continue the conversation started with the documentary and the latest Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink in partnership with Center for American Progress. Also joining the conversation is a passionate Chicago activist working with the Black Youth Project 100, who is committed to raising awareness around these issues and how we can help the next generation.
