“The Fall of the I-Hotel” brings to life the battle for housing in 1970’s San Francisco. The brutal eviction of the International Hotel’s tenants culminated a decade of spirited resistance to the raising of Manilatown.

Join The Tenants Union with special guest Dr. Estella Habal, one of the lead organizers of the movement and author of an important book documenting the struggle.  Audience members can engage with Dr. Habal in a community dialogue on Seattle’s own fight to save affordable housing.
