About This Day Fresno
This Day Fresno is a series of films following eight nonprofits in Fresno, California and the work they are doing to improve their respective neighborhoods.
Told through the voices of residents, civic leaders, and neighborhood nonprofits,
This Day Fresno explores the complex array of challenges that face distressed communities and the hope that arises when neighbors come together.
Each month will feature a different nonprofit, granting a behind-the-scenes look at the historical
and cultural landscape of Fresno’s disinvested communities, and the stories of people fighting against the status quo.
The featured nonprofits are part of the Communities Organized for Resident Empowerment (CORE) Initiative at the Central Valley Community Foundation.
