Event Type: Meeting
Gentrification and displacement are disrupting lives and communities all over the country, and the Bay Area is ground zero. With the San Francisco tech boom, and the redevelopment of neighborhoods resulting in the displacement of working class people and communities of color, living and working in Oakland and San Francisco is becoming more and more difficult. But gentrification is also nothing new, and the US has a rich history of fightback against housing discrimination and displacement.
