Grit & Grace: The Fight for the American Dream is a groundbreaking documentary-style film produced by the 117th Congress's House Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth. Narrated by Emmy® award-winning actress Sarah Jessica Parker, this first-of-its-kind movie features three true stories from across the country of what it means to find economic security in America, as well as the diverse paths people are taking to get there.

The screening is followed by a conversation on some of the film's borderless themes—economic disparity, hope, action, representation, and interconnectedness—seen through a global lens.
