Sports In The City – For Economy or Community?

Sports In The City – For Economy or Community?

Wednesday November 14 6:30pm

Roxie Theater 3117 16th Street San Francisco

Professional athletic sports dominate the attention of City Hall and mass media, but often it’s the grass-roots sports programs that provide historically marginalized youth a connection to each other, the larger athletic community and the city as a whole. The “White Elephants” film questions the impact of a waterfront stadium project in Cape Town, South Africa, as the “Futbolistas 4 Life” and the “City Surf Project” films bring Bay Area empowerment stories to life. Join us at this special screening event and panel discussion with speakers who represent many sides of this issue, including sports activist and educator Dania Cabello, who is featured in “Futbolistas 4 Life”.
