Tonight, we explore the importance of space. Whether we’re talking about living space or our social surroundings, if you don’t own or manage the venue, you may be in a precarious situation. In this segment, we focus on the effects of Redevelopment on Filipinos in San Francisco’s South of Market community through the lens of Alleluia Panis, a longtime cultural worker and artistic director of Kularts, and MC Canlas, local historian and cultural specialist for the Filipino American Development Foundation.

To tell the modern day story about displacement and land ownership in San Francisco, you have to start with the International Hotel. This weekend, I went to the annual commemoration of the eviction. Board member Carlos Zialcita kicked off the event.
