Join the American Constitution Society and the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul for a film screening of Sold Out: Affordable Housing at Risk. With alarming frequency, individuals, households and whole communities are being displaced as a result of a growing wave of real estate investments upscaling formerly affordable apartments across the Twin Cities region. Produced by Twin Cities PBS in partnership with Minnesota Housing Partnership, this new 60-minute documentary lifts up the stories of affected residents, highlights the community impacts of displacement and showcases the urgent need to preserve affordable housing.

Timothy Thompson, President and Senior Attorney at the Housing Justice Center
Libby Starling, Deputy Director of the Community Development Division at the Metropolitan Council
Yusef Mgeni, Vice President and Political Action Chair at the Minnesota/Dakotas Area Conference of the NAACP
