Displacement & Gentrification in Greater Boston Panel

gent post 3

The panel will bring together activists, scholars and planners working on the front lines of the struggle to maintain and strengthen communities affected by gentrification and displacement in the greater Boston area. The panel is hosted by MIT’s Displacement Research & Action Network (DRAN), an international collaboration drawing attention to the global impact of development-induced displacement. As part of DRAN’s efforts to build new theory and evidence in a variety of world regions, this panel seeks to deepen the conversation on gentrification and evictions in American cities.

The event will be held Tuesday, April 15th from 5-7pm in 9-450A&B.
