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

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. 

Facilitators from SURJ - Oakland/Bay Area will present analysis based on the work of Causa Justa :: Just Cause. SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice), Bay Area chapter, is part of a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice through community organizing, mobilizing, and education. All are welcome at this workshop regardless of identity. 

We are asking for a $5-$20 donation, sliding scale, which will go to support CJJCs work challenging gentrification and fighting displacement. However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
