Public Housing & Activism Series Pt. III:
Gente Si, Gentrify No: Resisting Displacement in Boyle Heights 

Activists, residents, and community members will come together to discuss the struggle against gentrification and displacement in Boyle Heights. Boyle Heights is at the epicenter of a spatially contested struggle for shelter in the midst of Los Angeles’ crisis of housing affordability. This renewed interested in the neighborhood comes after decades of disinvestment, racial discrimination, and substandard employment opportunities for its long-term residents. As a historic entry point for Mexican immigrants into the country, gentrification in Boyle Heights has not only taken a toll on the neighborhood’s most vulnerable populations, but it has eroded the vital social and cultural institutions of self-determination. But the threat of displacement has also inspired a rigorous and thriving social movement in response. In a moderated discussion, panelists will explore the realities of gentrification and the organizing that has emerged as a response to provide context to the debate about gentrification in the neighborhood, and similar debates taking place across Los Angeles.

MODERATOR:

Ananya Roy, Professor of Urban Planning, Social Welfare, and Geography, and Director of the Institute on Inequality and Democracy, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs

Elizabeth BlaneyCo-Executive Director, Union de Vecinos
