Event Details

Submitted by the Event Organizer

Please join First Congregational Church of Oakland and KCET City Rising for a screening of the new documentary special, CITY RISING, examining gentrification in California, followed by a discussion about the use of Public Land in Oakland.

The multi-platform documentary series shows how gentrification is deeply rooted in a history of discriminatory laws and practices in the United States that have disproportionately impacted and continue to impact marginalized communities. The film follows the journey of California communities that are fighting displacement and features a growing movement of advocates seeking responsible development across the state.

Following the film, a group of local advocates from the Citywide Anti-Displacement Network will speak about the work they are doing to end displacement in Oakland.

This event is free and open to the public!

Additionally, this event is a fundraiser for First Congregational Church of Oakland (FCCO). If you cannot attend the event and give there, or if you would prefer to give online, please use the following link to donate to FCCO. In the Add a a note section, please type in City Rising.
