This is what poverty looks like in America !!

Dear Friends,

I want to make sure you got a chance to see this.

We just launched the trailer for Sojourners' new upcoming film The Line,

and it’s already taking off across the web and across the country! It’s written and directed by Emmy Award-winning producer Linda Midgett, and chronicles the very real stories of four real people struggling with real poverty in America today.

The Line still

You’ll meet a banker in the suburban Midwest who used to earn six-figures a year and now, after the economic collapse, must go to a food bank to feed his three kids; a fisherman on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana who has watched his livelihood and his culture wash away in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and a devastating off-shore oil spill; a blue collar guy in North Carolina who worked hard his whole life but lost his job, became homeless, and started over as a restaurant busboy; and a single mom in Chicago who battles daily to ensure that her son is safe, healthy, and has the opportunity to go to college.

You can watch — and share — the official trailer for The Line, which debuts next month, right HERE.
