"City Rising" Premiere Screening Event & Discussion


Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017: Please join KCET and The California Endowment (TCE) for a premiere screening event & discussion of a new documentary special examining gentrification called CITY RISING

In partnership with TCE, 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.

  • Come early to view a poster exhibit by the Center for the Study of Political Graphics!
  • Following a special director's cut screening of the documentary is a panel discussion moderated by Val Zavala, the multi-award winning anchor of KCET’s investigative news magazine SoCal Connected, and panelists Robin Hughes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Abode Communities, Isela Gracian, President of East LA Community Corporation, and Tram Nguyen who works with Alameda County Public Health Department’s Place Matters Initiative.
