Offsite discussion: Dear Next Mayor
May 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
with Dr. Lisa Bates, Sharita Towne, and PAALF People’s Plan
On May 18th, 2013, Dr. Lisa Bates published the seminal report Gentrification and Displacement Study: Implementing an Equitable Inclusive Development Strategy in the Context of Gentrification. Three years later, we revisit its findings, and think about where our city is headed. We will examine the effectiveness of envisioning positive solutions, following the Portland’s mayoral election.
This event is the third discussion in a series of events about gentrification in Portland, organized by Newspace’s current resident Sharita Towne, in collaboration with c3:initiative. Starting in March, Sharita has collaborated with local community organizations and artists to engage and further the discussion on the issues of our changing city.
This discussion will take place at CIO (Center for Intercultural Organizing) at 700 N Killingsworth St, Portland, OR 97217.
Please note this event does NOT take place at Newspace.
