Wal-Mart has plans to open at least four stores in DC by 2012. Notorious for threatening small businesses, causing job loss, lowering wage standards and disrespecting communities. Concerned District residents are coming together to spread the news about Wal-Mart’s history and make plans to protect our communities.
Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price features the deeply personal stories and everyday lives of families and communities struggling to survive in a Wal-Mart world. It’s an emotional journey that will challenge the way you think, feel…and shop. Film will be followed by a discussion about the likely impact Wal-Mart will have on Ward 5 and how the community can respond.
