Movie Premier – City Rising – Featuring BLM Sac & Gentrification

Watch BLACK LIVES MATTER SACRAMENTO and other folks from Sacramento…as well as folks all over California, tackle GENTRIFICATION IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS.

KCET produced this movie highlighting the effects of gentrification in cities most impacted all over the state.

City Rising goes to….
Boyle Heights
South Central in Los Angeles
Long Beach
Santa Ana
and the Oak Park neighborhood of Sacramento

Quoting the movie source..

“Gentrification arrives with promises of revitalization but has also developed from a history of discriminatory laws and practices in the United States. City Rising illuminates this history and reveals how gentrification is traditionally molded and dictated by those in power.”

Come join us and Organize Sacramento, as well as some other organizations tackling gentrification in Sacramento, while we watch this movie and then have a panel discussion with folks from BLM Sacramento, ACCE, OPNA, and the Sacramento Housing Alliance.
