7th Annual SF Urban Film Fest
In this film and panel discussion program, we grapple with the questions of why communities of color are most impacted by environmental hazards and public health crises, and how to make sure disaster responses going forward centers those who are impacted the most. In exploring racial disparities in deaths during the 1995 Chicago heat wave, Judith Helfand’s film "Cooked: Survival by Zip Code" serves as a reminder that COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on communities of color was preordained. Manjula Varghese’s short film "Before It Was Them, Now It’s Us" conveys stories of these impacts as experienced by San Francisco’s Bayview community. Join us as we discuss community-based solutions around climate and public health in the context of urban planning and equity.
