KCET's 'City Rising: The Informal Economy' Screening
On Wednesday November 28, 2018 from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. KCET and The California Endowment held the premiere screening of KCET’s "City Rising: The Informal Economy" at the California Endowment in anticipation of the broadcast of the documentary airing Tues., Dec. 4 at 9 p.m. on KCET and Sun., Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Link TV (DirecTV 375 and DISH Network 9410).
Directly following the screening Ananya Roy (Professor of Urban Planning and Social Welfare, UCLA Luskin) moderated a panel discussion with Isela Gracian (President, East LA Community Corporation), Pascale Joassart-Marcelli (Professor of Geography and Director of the Interdisciplinary Urban Studies Program at SDSU) and Danielle Mahones (Director, Leadership Development Program, UC Berkeley Labor Center).
The new one-hour, multi-platform documentary called "City Rising: The Informal Economy" follows four California workers facing structural discrimination but fighting to change policy and improve upward mobility for their communities. From the urban neighborhoods and industrial corridors of Long Beach to the rural Coachella Valley, on-camera interviews with organizers, politicians and experts will contextualize labor in California, the world’s fifth largest economy. The effects of this movement are far-reaching and their voices will ultimately impact the social health of communities across the country and beyond.
