Displacement: Place, Power, and Race
The Foreclosure Defense Group presents its second event in the "Welcome to Class Warfare" series

Friday, March 8th

$? Free!!
First Congregational Church
2501 Harrison St, Oakland, CA

Gentrification, foreclosures, "urban redevelopment".... all are facets of the same brute force we feel acutely in our daily lives : Displacement, the uprooting and shifting of communities serving the demands of speculative capital and white supremacy. We offer this forum to hear voices from different struggles, to deepen understanding of the powers at play, and to strategize for popular self defense.

Historically, Economically, the Fight Ahead of Us

James Bealum, former Fillmore resident and organizer, will speak on the community organizing against displacment in the Fillmore of the mid-1960s

Darwin Bond-Graham, Oakland journalist and sociologist, will present on his recent work detailing the local "foreclosure-to-rental mill". on the further impositions of precarity on the working class and communities of color.

Tony Marks-Block, an organizer with the Stop the Injunctions Coalition will speak to the deployment of gang injunctions effecting displacement

Brooke Terpstra, FDG organizer, will present on different models of present organizing and their underlying values and limitations.

Community members.... You! Each segment is intended not only as a presentation but as provocation! As starting points for discussion, the inclusion of all our voices. Each portion will have ample time and space for any questions and discussion.



Hope to see you Friday!
