The Fall of the I-Hotel & the Fate of PQ Village

Join APALA San Diego for brunch as we celebrate Filipinx American History Month!

APALA San Diego will be hosting a screening of the documentary “The Fall of the I-Hotel”, a film about the displacement of mostly Filipino residents of a low-income residential hotel in San Francisco and the community organizing efforts to resist its demolition.

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion about the housing crisis in San Diego including the current movement to save the last affordable housing development in Rancho Penasquitos where over 300 seniors, veterans and low-income families, most of whom are Filipino, are being forcibly evicted and will be faced with homelessness.

Moderated by Amanda Solomon Amorao, PhD

Guest Panelists:
Art Teodosio Jr. (organizer with PQ Village)
Carol Kim
Felicidad Cayabyab (PQ Village)
Other residents from PQ Village

Date: Saturday, October 28, 2017
Time: 11:00 AM – 2:00 pm
Location: Olivewood Clubhouse
541 East 24th Street
National City, CA 91950

Brunch/food and refreshments will be provided. Please reach out to APALA San Diego if there are any accommodations needed.

Note: It is with great intention that this event has been organized in South San Diego to help continue raise awareness in honor of the organizers and residents of PQ Village, so that we can all mobilize together and show up when the city council meets with the planning commission to decide/vote on the fate of PQ Village.
