Displacement & Gentrification: How did we get here and how do we stop it? (Oakland)

  • Sierra Club 2101 Webster Street, Suite 1300 Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

Hosted by SURJ - Oakland/Bay Area

Gentrification comes up constantly in the Bay Area, but few of us feel equipped to take action against it. Is it inevitable? What can we do now to prevent displacement? 

This SURJ workshop will put gentrification and displacement in a historical context so we understand the racialized political and economic drivers. You'll hear about past and current struggles led by communities of color to preserve their homes and communities.
