With vivid and often beautiful footage of hard places to grow up in, The Same Heart is a documentary following the stark effects of inequality on the world’s children, including the impacts of environmental degradation. The film gathers a growing number of global economists, joining their voices with moral leaders, to propose an extremely small tax on Wall Street financial transactions - popularly known as the 'Robin Hood Tax -- to place the needs of children at the heart of the global financial system in an age of environmental crisis.
The event is sponsored by Friends of the Earth US, Institute for Policy Studies, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, National Nurses United, and Public Citizen.
