What does gentrification and displacement mean for Equitable Economic Development?


In many cities, there is much debate about defining and identifying gentrification. There is also a lively debate about the relationship between economic development activities, like new retail or corridor revitalization, and displacement of residents and local businesses. Many city leaders struggle with how to understand how gentrification and displacement impacts their residents, especially low-income residents and communities of color, and what tools to use to address negative impacts. During this webinar, we will engage in a dialogue about these issues with staff from PolicyLink, facilitated by Anita Cozart, Senior Director and featuring Kalima Rose, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Victor Rubin, Vice President of Research.
