AFS presents PBS’ Indie Lens Pop-Up.

The story of activist Ruby Duncan, a woman who lost her job in a Las Vegas hotel due to a workplace accident and saw firsthand the shocking conditions that welfare recipients face. Her organizing work — including the occupation of the Caesar’s Palace casino — is profiled in this fascinating documentary.

This screening is a free community event, but you must reserve your ticket ahead of time.

Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood series that brings people together—virtually and in-person—for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Featuring documentaries seen on PBS’s Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders, and organizations to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics and social issues, to family and community relationships.
