Storming Caesars Palace focuses on how Vegas activist Ruby Duncan's grassroots movement of moms fought for basic income guarantee.

After losing her job as a hotel worker in Las Vegas, Ruby Duncan joined a welfare rights group of mothers who defied notions of the “welfare queen.” In a fight for guaranteed income, Ruby and other equality activists took on the Nevada mob in organizing a massive protest that shut down Caesars Palace. Storming Caesars Palace airs Monday, March 20 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
