BURLINGTON, Vt. - U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is hosting town meetings across Vermont on Sunday about income inequality in America. 

A press release says during the town meeting day Sanders will show a free screening of Robert Reich's documentary Inequality for All. The documentary will be shown simultaneously at four locations, Middlebury, Brattleboro, St. Johnsbury, and Bennington. A short discussion will follow the discussion. 

INTERACTIVE: Income Inequality by State

"Income and wealth inequality is the great moral, economic and political issue of our time," Sanders said. "It needs to be addressed by Congress, and it needs to be vigorously discussed by the American people."  

This Sunday's event will mark the first time Sanders has held four town meetings simultaneously.
