Catch OCPP executive director Chuck Sheketoff in AMERICAN WINTER, a documentary that follows the stories of eight Portland-area families struggling to survive in the aftermath of the Great Recession.
Chuck comments on holes in the safety net, how poor a family needs to be to obtain public assistance, income inequality, corporate profits, CEO salaries and the American dream.
Produced and directed by Emmy award-winning filmmakers Joe and Harry Gantz, AMERICAN WINTER presents a powerful portrait of our nation’s economic downturn from the point of view of families in financial crisis. OCPP was asked to be in the film to give some context to the stories.
