Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/Author
Across the Bay Area, rents rise and everyday people find themselves evicted and displaced from their homes. As the tech industry grows in power, many of us find ourselves struggling more to survive and pushed out into the suburbs. At the same time, brutal police forces shot our friends and neighbors dead in the street with impunity.

Join us to hear James Tracey, author of the new book, "Dispatches Against Displacement" discuss how this reality is shaped by a system that wants to crush and silence the poor. From Oakland, community organizers Linda Grant from the Qilombo community center will talk about how these issues are playing out in Oakland, and Rachel Jackson will talk about how the drug war fuels these racist policies.

More than just a discussion on what's wrong, the speakers will also talk about how regular people are getting organized in their neighborhoods and fighting back.

Saturday, May 30th, 7pm
