WTTW, in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events presents a FREE screening and Discussion of My Neighborhood: Pilsen. This engaging new 1-hour documentary is an intimate street-level look at what community engagement and activism has done for one Chicago neighborhood: Pilsen. Playing like a street mural come to life, six Pilsen residents share their personal stories to illustrate how the residents of this predominantly Mexican-American working class community have organized to address the societal issues facing their community, ranging from housing to health care to education and citizenship.
