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?
