The City of Eugene Human Rights Commission is hosting an event in Honor of the United Nations' World Day of Social Justice on Sunday, February 20.The event will include screenings of the film Invisible Class as well as a panel discussion. The Human Rights Commission will also award its annual Human Rights Award to this year's recipient, Mo Young. The film screening provides a history and background of the current state of unhoused people in the US. The panel discussion will be hosted by Commissioner Heather Sielicki and will include representatives from local service providers, law enforcement, mental health and others. The panel will discuss the film local efforts to support the unhoused community.
The Invisible Class explores what it truly means to be homeless in America, challenging stereotypes and examining the systemic causes of mass homelessness in the wealthiest nation in the world. From coast to coast the film is a day in the life of homelessness across America.
Previously American documentary films on homelessness tend to focus on small subsections of people. While this is definitely an important aspect of
contemporary homelessness, it's also only a sliver of the overall situation of an ongoing machine that creates and perpetuates mass homelessness and has for 40 years.
