Gentrification is uprooting communities around the world and inspiring new forms of resistance that may very well transform it. Andrew Lee will discuss gentrification’s historical roots and global scope while sharing the analyses emerging from interviews with over a dozen activists across the US. A former participant in the campaign to stop the development of Google’s San José campus, Lee today lives in Philadelphia and organizes with No Arena in Chinatown Solidarity. He is the author of a new book on gentrification, Defying Displacement: Urban Recomposition and Social War (AK Press, 2024).

This program is part of the Tarea Hall Pittman Social Justice Series. This series 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.

Thank you to the Friends of the Berkeley Public Library for their support of this event.
