Join Pitt Law’s Center for Civil Rights and Racial Justice for a panel discussion regarding the PUSH documentary, directed by Fredrik Gertten. PUSH sheds light on a new kind of faceless landlord, our increasingly unlivable cities and an escalating crisis that has an effect on us all. This is not gentrification, it's a different kind of monster. The film follows Leilani Farha, the UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing, as she's traveling the globe, trying to understand who's being pushed out of the city and why.
