Deconstructing Gentrification: Development Without Community

Join ONE DC this Sunday at Busboys & Poets (14th & V) for A.C.T.O.R. (A Continuing Talk on Race) presents: Deconstructing Gentrification: Development Without Community.


Location: 2021 14th St NW
Time: Sunday, January 4, 5 - 7PM

The first A.C.T.O.R. discussion of 2015 will focus on the topic of gentrification and its disproportionately negative impact on poorer communities and people of color. Join us in exploring the definition and causes of gentrification, as well as constructive actions to counteract the current models of urban development and displacement.
