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

Protest with sign \This training will put gentrification and displacement in a historical context so we understand the racialized political and economic drivers. We will use this historical analysis to discuss the ways we can challenge gentrification today.

The analysis that we are presenting is based on the work of Causa Justa :: Just Cause (CJJC) and we are asking for $5-$20 donation, sliding scale, which will go to support CJJCs work. (No one will be turned away for lack of funds but please email surjbasebuilding@gmail.com to reserve your seat if you are unable to sign up through this site.)

The event is wheelchair accessible. If you have specific access needs, please email surjbasebuilding@gmail.com and we'll be happy to work with you to accommodate them. 

SCENT FREE: We ask that guests do their best to be as scent free as possible. Please refer to this resource from the EastBay Meditation Center for more information on what that means: How to Be Fragrance Free.

There will be a scent free section of seating offered.
