Casa Y Comunidad: Latino/A/X Housing in Oregon: COVID-19 and Intergenerational Housing

Tuesday, December 12, 2023

11:00 AM-12:00 PM

At this MERHG event, Dr. Arroyo, assistant professor at the department of Urban Studies and Planning at the University of California San Diego, will talk about Casa y Comunidad, an oral history-based limited documentary series about salient housing access issues affecting the Latino/a/x community in Oregon, one of the fastest-growing immigrant gateways for Mexican and Central American migrants in the U.S.

In Summer 2022, an all-Latino/a/x team set out to document the everyday realities of the Latino/a/x community as they seek to satisfy one of the most basic of human needs—housing. The team covered the seven major regions of the State of Oregon, each of which presents a unique housing challenge ranging from eviction, displacement, and gentrification in the greater Portland metropolitan area to farmworker housing in the Willamette Valley to fire recovery in southern Oregon. Every episode in the Casa y Comunidad docuseries begins by centering one family or individual, incorporating on-site filming in and around their home, workplace, or town or city to capture their personal migration and housing history.
