Socialist Night School: Gentrification and the Capital City
July 2, 2019
In recent years, Oakland, San Francisco, and cities across the country have been drastically reshaped by gentrification: new development causes rents in formerly affordable neighborhoods to skyrocket, pricing working people out of their neighborhoods — often where their families have lived for generations — and leaving many people without homes altogether.
Who or what is driving gentrification? How has gentrification played out in Oakland in particular? And what can be done to address the crises of displacement and homelessness caused by gentrification? Join East Bay DSA’s Socialist Night School on Tuesday, July 2 to discuss these questions and more.
Accessibility: The venue and restrooms are wheelchair-accessible.
