City Rising Press Materials
City Rising follows 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. In partnership with The California Endowment, the multi-platform, one-hour documentary series shows how gentrification is deeply rooted in a history of discriminatory laws and practices in the United States. Included in the documentary are gentrification activists that include USC’s Professor of Sociology Manuel Pastor, Former NBA Player and Mayor of Sacramento Kevin Johnson, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, The California Endowment’s Senior VP for Healthy Communities Dr. Anthony Iton and UCLA Urban Planner Gilda Haas. Please visit kcet.org/cityrising for online articles and social media videos providing in-depth, critical analysis on the issues surrounding gentrification and displacement.
