Gentrification
DEI Advocacy Resource

September 13, 2021

Gentrification is the process of neighborhood change that includes economic change in a historically disinvested neighborhood - by means of real estate investment and new higher-income residents moving in - as well as demographic change - not only in terms of income level, but also in terms of changes in the education level or racial make-up of residents. 

"We cannot create cities for everyone unless we're first willing to listen to everyone." Liz Ogbu
