With no opportunities for adequate employment and a government system that is increasingly against them, a band of angry, largely homeless welfare mothers living in the Kensington district of Philadelphia banded together to form the Kensington Welfare Rights Union. This moving and though-provoking documentary recounts their valiant struggle against circumstance, society and the system that seems designed to keep them in abject poverty. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
