History of Rochester Gentrification
March 28th at 540WMain

Facilitated by educator Shane Wiegand of the City Roots Community Land Trust this workshop will explore and deconstruct the history of redlining, restrictive covenants, and racist/discriminatory housing practices throughout Rochester's history of urban development. 

How have these exploitative practices led to the disinvestment of the inner city, downtown; eventually leading to displacement in the present is just one of many essential questions that will be explored.

What individual and collective actions can we take today to dismantle and end systematic displacement of marginalized communities and persons of color?

There will be two upcoming presentations

---> Register and pay ($10) online
----> This class is open to all ages 4 grade and up
----> Open to all members of the community interested in learning more about the gentrification in Rochester in a historical context
-----> FB event

ASL interpreting can be provided with at least 10 days advance novice. Once registered course fee is non-refundable and cannot be applied to a future class or event.
