Synopsis

The song "America the Beautiful" always reminded Gale Cincotta about how great it was to live in America, the land with great schools and great jobs. It wasn't until Cincoltta became a community organizer that she realized all schools and all jobs are not great for everyone. Cincotta's hope was to give people the power to make their lives better, not solely by pointing out problems but by doing something about them.
