A new installment of the acclaimed documentary series CITY RISING 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 called ‘CITY RISING: The Informal Economy’ is in partnership with The California Endowment and follows four California workers facing structural discrimination, but fighting to change policy and improve upward mobility for their communities.
