Expanding the Frame: Multiple Perspectives on Gentrification in Oakland 

At the Oakland Public Library.

In case you aren’t aware, gentrification is a complicated issue that effects different communities in different ways and so requires varied community response. On May 7, at 12:30 p.m., a panel at Oakland’s Main Library (125 14th St., Oakland) will discuss some of those nuances. Titled “Expanding the Frame: Multiple Perspectives on Gentrification in Oakland,” the event will feature organizers from Critical Resistance, Indian People Organizing for Change, People of Color Sustainable Housing Network, and Street Level Health Project confronting gentrification from a variety of angles: policing and imprisonment, colonialism and indigeneity, visionary housing alternatives, immigration, and public health. In light of those differing perspectives, the roundtable will discuss how best to develop political projects that bring together various activist groups to take on gentrification from an intersectional standpoint.
