Digging @CAAAV's new #danceathon trailer: freestyling in the streets of #chinatown nyc http://youtu.be/5W0Ur3hq79U featuring +Dennis Chin +Meejin Richart +Marlene Paez +Eric Trott and other CAAAV organizers and members.

This is a notable example of a grassroots org with limited resources doing a one-day experiment to produce a publicity piece. Most importantly, folks had fun doing it and it shows, offering a peek into the everyday culture and relationships in CAAAV. Lastly, in the video Chinatown doesn't simply appear as an exotic background, but it shows the community and people that the organization lives in and works with, organizing residents against gentrification, police violence, etc.
