Reverse Gentrification- Often upper-class people move into vibrant, affordable neighborhoods. As they arrive, property values increase and the previous residents of these neighborhoods can no longer afford to live there. This process is called gentrification. This workshop is to provide tactics of avoiding gentrification in your neighborhoods by making the elites that move in feel unwelcome and threatened (much like they make us feel when they take over our neighborhoods).
