Description: Cities and neighborhoods are rapidly changing across the U.S. and the world. Displacement is causing massive shifts in the class and racial demographics and cultural character of historically working class areas. This workshop will identify the root causes of gentrification and suggest methods for resisting displacement. Special attention will be drawn to the relationships between gentrification, racism, public space and the police as well to the specific nature of gentrification in Olympia.
