Innovation Forum on Gentrification: How Can Greater Boston Address Displacement?

April 9, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - April 10, 2015 @ 3:30 am

Mel King Institute / Supported by The Barr Foundation, NeighborWorks America and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.

Can Greater Boston grow as a region without displacing its low-income residents?

For the past year, local community developers, tenant organizers, public officials and researchers have been asking this very question and exploring the causes and impact of gentrification in the Greater Boston area through the Gentrification Learning Community. Greater Boston LISC and the Mel King Institute are now widening the conversation to the broader community through this Innovation Forum to help us all think about ways we can grow our economy while mitigating the negative impacts of gentrification in Greater Boston.

Hear from speakers from diverse sectors and engage in discussions with other professionals, activists and community members about making Greater Boston a more equitable place where people of all income levels can afford to live.

This event is a part of The Innovation Forum, a regular gathering for community development professionals in Massachusetts to hear from experts on a new challenge or opportunity in the field and discuss adaptive solutions.
