Online Panel Discussion

Tuesday, December 15, 2020, 6:30 pm

In conjunction with Imagining De-Gentrified Futures

How has the COVID-19 global pandemic accelerated real estate speculation, predatory landlord practices and displacement?

Join us for a panel discussion with New York City organizers, activists and scholars who will share their research, organizing strategies, and bold visions for successful, community-led anti-gentrification and anti-displacement movements. The discussion will delve into the ongoing struggles against gentrification, real estate speculation, and the development of new city jails. Panelists will share strategies and visions for community sustainability, resistance, resilience, and housing justice.
