CITY RISING: The Informal Economy Premiere and Panel Discussion

Wednesday, November 28, from 6-9 p.m.: The California Endowment (TCE), in partnership with KCET, invites you to a premiere screening event for KCET's CITY RISING: The Informal Economy, the follow up to KCET's City Rising documentary which launched in 2017 and focused on issues of gentrification and displacement in communities across California.

CITY RISING: The Informal Economy examines how workers that labor off the books, sometimes hiding in plain sight, are organizing to find pathways for legalization and protection. The new one-hour, multi-platform documentary follows four California workers fighting to change policy for the legalization, protection and regulation of their labor. From the urban neighborhoods and industrial corridors of Long Beach to the rural Coachella Valley, on-camera interviews with organizers, politicians and experts will contextualize labor in California, the world’s fifth largest economy. The effects of this movement are far reaching and their voices will ultimately impact the social health of communities across the country and beyond.

Panel discussion to follow screening.  More details to follow!
