‘City Rising’ Engages Communities

A multi-platform documentary series in partnership with The California Endowment that has previously examined gentrification, City Rising’s second season investigates informal economies — how workers who labor off the books, sometimes hiding in plain sight, are organizing to find pathways for legalization and protection.

You can watch the second season of City Rising online for free now.

Impact Media Partners (IMP) is proud to partner with client PBS SoCal/KCET to produce two marquee screenings (in Oakland and Long Beach) of episodes from City Rising Season Two. Additionally, IMP is supporting grassroots partners across the state in hosting community-based screenings in areas highlighted in the series. To help deepen connections to the content, IMP will produce engagement materials to support viewers and organizers in using the content to further their work.
