Razing Liberty Square addresses climate gentrification in Miami
On this edition of Your Call's One Planet series, we discuss Razing Liberty Square, a new documentary focusing on a public housing community in Miami, which is ground-zero for sea-level-rise.
When residents of Liberty Square learn about a $300 million revitalization project in 2015, they know that their neighborhood is located on the highest-and-driest ground in the city. The film follows them as they prepare to fight a new form of racial injustice - climate gentrification.
