Please join KCET City Rising and The California Endowment for a premiere screening event and discussion of a new documentary special examining gentrification called CITY RISING. In partnership with The California Endowment, the multi-platform documentary series shows how gentrification is deeply rooted in a history of discriminatory laws and practices in the United States that have and continue to impact health outcomes for marginalized communities. The film follows the journey of California communities that are fighting displacement and features a growing movement of advocates seeking responsible development across the state.
The evening includes a spoken word performance by Get Lit – Words Ignite Program Coordinator Monique Mitchell, who will share her piece on the impact of gentrification.
This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required. Limited space available!
