CHINATOWN TENANT STORIES 唐人街住客見聞
Chinatown Tenants Stories is a video and talkback series centered around the stories of low-income tenants affected by gentrification and displacement. Post-screening discussions were co-designed with the tenant storyteller to build their leadership skills, provide campaign updates, understand how policies impact families and communities, build solidarity amongst tenants, and collectively strategize ways to fight displacement and harassment.
This series was developed as part of the Asian American Oral History Collective in collaboration with the Chinatown Tenants Union of CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities. Chinatown Tenant Stories is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Many thanks to fiscal sponsorship support from Third World Newsreel.
