Juanita Irizarry: Gentrification And Community Youth - Impact and Responses: UYWI 2008

What is gentrification and what are the impacts on youth when
gentrification and displacement overtake a community? This
workshop will look at gentrification-related community development
issues in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood and elsewhere.
It will borrow from secular community organizing and development
models in that community to glean ideas for engaging and
empowering youth as they confront head-on some social justice
issues that impact their daily lives.
