Resisting Gentrification: Then & Now

Saturday, April 10, 2021, 4:00 PM - 10:30 PM

The 2021 Gentrification Conference presents a historical recap of Rochester's movements and resistance led by BIPOC community activists around issues related to gentrification, housing injustice and environmental racism. Discussions will center how these movements have continued in the modern era in Rochester and beyond.

what you'll learn:
1) An understanding of the political and economic systems that cause gentrification, and the major players within those systems that benefit from the process of gentrification.
2) Meet several organizations working to combat gentrification and holistically develop communities in the City of Rochester and how to join those organizations.
3) Comprehension of the relationship between historical and contemporary policies and practices that have directly contributed to housing inequities in Rochester.
4) Feel more connected to one another and the people/communities most affected by gentrification and displacement in our communities.
