Green Streets goes to Hollywood
April 29, 2014 | McCormack Baron Salazar
A documentary about the green-collar entrepreneurs who live and work in McCormack Baron Salazar’s San Francisco communities premiered on April 29th, 2014 in San Francisco.
"Green Streets The Movie: Turning Trash into Cash in an American Inner City," tells the inspiring story of Tyrone Mullins, a young entrepreneur from the streets of San Francisco who built a successful business in environmental services from the ground up. Not without its fair share of challenges along the way, Green Streets, now four years old, has catalyzed a community and provided opportunity for personal and professional growth for Tyrone and his peers for whom options for upward mobility were limited to what the streets had to offer. But with determination to succeed and to change the game, this young crew launched a successful social enterprise that ultimately helped them beat the odds.
Tyrone’s story has been captured by San Francisco-based documentary producer Citizen Film and will premiered on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at the San Francisco Public Library. A panel discussion followed the showing and featured Tyrone with David Campos, San Francisco Board of Supervisors; Sandra Susan Smith, Professor, UC Berkeley; Debbie Mukamal, Executive Director, Project ReMade; Paul Guisti, Public Affairs & Business Manager, Recology Sunset Scavangers; and Tomiquia Moss, Director, HOPE SF.
