Investment Without Displacement: Solutions for Equitable, Healthy, Vibrant Communities


Tuesday, December 4, 2018


9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.



Tune in as we explore national trends in the crisis of housing, commercial, and cultural displacement happening across the U.S. with a focus on strategies that bridge the gap between capital investments and community benefits. Explore how both gentrification and disinvestment are drivers for displacement and learn about new strategies and collaborations required to ensure that capital investments benefit all residents.
