Free film screening of "Trickle Down Town"
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I am writing to bring to your attention a free special viewing of “Trickle Down Town,” a documentary that takes an up-close look at people experiencing homelessness in Seattle and those involved in helping them:
Wednesday, January 30, 2019
Ethnic Cultural Theatre
3931 Brooklyn Ave NE, Seattle
Created by filmmaker Tomasz Biernacki, “Trickle Down Town” documents visits to homeless encampments and interviews not only with residents of encampments such as “Camp Second Chance,” but also those working to help move people from homelessness into permanent housing.
I will be co-hosting this viewing with Councilmember Larry Gossett and the UW Law, Societies and Justice Department. We will be joined by Tomasz Biernacki for a post-viewing conversation that will include Sharon Lee, Executive Director of the Low Income Housing Institute; Timothy Harris, Executive Director and Founder of “Real Change” Newspaper; and Gordon McHenry, President & CEO of Solid Ground.
This film provides a unique glimpse into the everyday struggle of our neighbors living without permanent housing and the folks who work tirelessly to help them. I’m looking forward to a robust conversation about the film and the steps being taken to compassionately address our homelessness and housing crises.
