City Rising (Trailer): Gentrification, Renters and Displacement
CITY RISING is a multi-platform, one-hour documentary series following the journey of California communities that are fighting gentrification and features a growing movement of advocates seeking responsible development across the state. People of color who cherish their neighborhood’s culture and sense of community are mobilizing against unsustainable rents and other forces they see pushing neighbors into homelessness. CITY RISING looks at six California communities where residents, activists and urban planners have identified gentrification as a primary concern: Boyle Heights and South Central in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Santa Ana, Oakland and the Oak Park neighborhood of Sacramento.
