Event description

Description

Community Coalition is proud to host an exclusive two-day screening of CITY RISING, a multiplatform documentary series that examines how gentrification is deeply rooted in a history of discriminatory laws and practices in the United States. The film follows the journey of California communities, including South Los Angeles, that are fighting displacement and features a growing movement of advocates seeking responsible development across the state.


Due to our limited room capacity we will host two screenings in order to accommodate our community.

October 18: Community Coalition Members Screening.

October 19: Public Screening. Co-hosted by T.R.U.S.T South LA and supported by SAJE (open to members and non-members).


Doors will open at 5:30 PM and screenings will begin at 6 PM. Film is in English with Spanish subtitles. Light refreshments will be provided including popcorn, candy and snacks.


Panel discussion will follow the film with local leaders, community members and other stakeholders covering themes of displacement, gentrification and housing inequities.


Movie screenings are FREE, but RSVP is required for both dates.

CITY RISING was produced in partnership with KCET, Link TV and The California Endowment.
