Movie Night! "City Rising"
May 7, 2019
Come join us to watch 'City Rising' and learn about the housing crisis in California.
"City Rising is a multi-platform documentary series in partnership with The California Endowment that has examined gentrification — its historical roots, economic role and social consequences. In this season, City Rising investigates informal economies — how workers who labor off the books, sometimes hiding in plain sight, are organizing to find pathways for legalization and protection.
City Rising illuminates the journey of California's neighborhoods advocating for responsible development. The documentary series highlights individuals facing discrimination but fighting to change policy and improve upward mobility for their communities. The effects of these movements are far-reaching, and their voices will ultimately impact the social health of communities across the country and beyond."
We will close the movie with a conversation about how we can address this crisis and win rent control in Sacramento!
Light snacks and refreshments provided.
