Gentrification comes up constantly in the Bay Area, but often we feel powerless. Is it inevitable? What can we do?
This workshop will put gentrification and displacement in a historical context so we understand the racialized political and economic drivers. You'll hear about past and current struggles led by communities of color to preserve their homes and communities. By tracing historic policies through current movements, we hope to learn from the past and talk about how we can come together to take action.
This workshop will be facilitated by SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice), Bay Area chapter, part of a national network of groups and individuals organizing for racial justice through community organizing, mobilizing, and education. All are welcome at this workshop regardless of identity.
This program is part of the Tarea Hall Pittman Social Justice Series. This program honors the legacy of Ms. Pittman’s social justice activism that positively affected the lives of people in California. Programming topics and formats are diverse but the goal of each event is to bring awareness and promote discussions related to human rights, social privilege, and equal opportunity.
