Painted Nails Documentary (trailer)
Static Preview

We witness the American dream crumble when Van Nguren, a Vietnamese nail salon worker, discovers her health problems, including two miscarriages, are the result of toxic chemicals in the products used in her salon. Van courageously becomes the first worker to testify in Congress against the cosmetic industry in over 30 years.

Painted Nailsenters the rich culture of Vietnamese-American Van Hoang's bustling nail salon in the Mission District of San Francisco. The salon caters to a diverse clientele, women of African American, European, Latino, and Asian ethnicities, who come not only for the acrylic nails with original design each a miniature painting that might include gold stars, glittering palm fronds, or frolicking blue dolphins, but also for the caring environment. The salon clients beam as they hold up their vividly colored talons for the camera, in a proud display of their identity as women. Produced and directed by Dianne Griffen. Associate producer and translator is Nhung Pham.

Healthcare & Homelessness Panel at Portland City Club
Static Preview
Streamed live on Jan 9, 2015

Presented on January 9, 2015, Healthcare & Homelessness

Panelists: Crista Gardner, Chair of the Research Committee on Health Care and Homelessness; David Labby, Medical Director at Health Share Oregon; Leo Rhodes, Vice Chair of the Committee on Health Care and Homelessness, and board member of Street Roots; Rachel Solotaroff, Medical Director at Central City Concern.

How can the maximum health benefit for the homeless population of Multnomah County be achieved from health care reform and expansion of the Oregon Health Plan? Homelessness remains a complex public health challenge. For too many individuals, the relentless struggle for safety and stability overshadows health needs. Common illnesses are allowed to progress, and minor injuries fester until they become emergencies. Challenges in caring for those experiencing homelessness reveal deep fault lines in our current health care system. This forum will discuss City Club's newly released report on health care and homelessness, and the issues we are facing as a community.

What is Resiliency by Tora Fisher
Static Preview

Tora Fisher is a New York based singer-songwriter and performance artist. When she was young, her mother encouraged her to develop her artistic side while her father exposed her to a world outside of the arts: he created the Fisher House Foundation, a network of comfort homes where military and their families can stay at no cost while their loved ones receive care and treatment. Tora developed a keen interest in these two starkly different worlds: that of the arts, and the art of war.

When Tora was 13, she experienced the unfathomable when she was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed her father, stepmother, and four others. Her resilience and determination to recover from this trauma was nurtured by her love of music and performance and her ability to pursue her dreams of being a singer-songwriter, pianist, dancer and recording artist. She has also fulfilled her dream of supporting her father's legacy by donating proceeds from her CDs to the Fisher House Foundation.

As Tora so aptly put it, "its not about what happened to me; it's about what's happening."Published on May 31, 2014
