In the face of impending erasure, communities of color are organizing to demand not only mitigating anti-displacement policies, but de-gentrification and the right to stay in place.</p> <p>Addressing this demand requires more than just a gesture towards equity concerns, but analyzing and correcting for the unjust distributional impacts of investments. How can we grapple with these issues of housing and neighborhood revitalization in our cities in ways that not only acknowledge historical legacies, but also engage present day planning practices?&nbsp;</p> <p>In her talk "De-Gentrifying Portland: so hopefully you won’t have to go through that," Dr. Lisa K. Bates will speak about her research and practice in Portland, Oregon’s historically Black neighborhoods. Lessons drawn point to challenges, but also strategies and opportunities to center racial justice in policy and planning.</p> <p><em>Co-sponsored by Equity in Place</em></p> <div class="col-sm-8 "> <div class="field field-name-field-app-body-one-tro-column field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p>Following Dr. Bates' presentation there will be a panel discussion that include these panelists:</p> <ul> <li>Jeremiah Ellison, Minneapolis Ward 5 City Council Member</li> <li>Tony Johnson, Saint Paul City Planner</li> <li>Tia Williams, Co-Director at the Frogtown Neighborhood Association</li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="item-list"><p><strong>CURA Programs:</strong></p><ul class="vocabulary-list"><li class="first last"><a href="/taxonomy/term/20">Kris Nelson Community-Based Research Program</a></li> </ul></div> Wed, 18 Apr 2018 18:44:13 +0000 jmiller 8114 at http://www.cura.umn.edu
