Resist Gentrification Action Summit: We Shall Not Be Moved We Will Improve

 
DECEMBER 2, 2017 – LEIMERT PARK, LOS ANGELES

Amid growing concerns about gentrification, nearly 50 organizations joined Housing Is a Human Right for a historic conference in Leimert Park, Los Angeles on December 2, 2017. The Resist Gentrification Action Summit drew more than 800 activists and residents to discuss how to combat the housing affordability crisis in their neighborhoods.

The day-long summit at Audubon Middle School centered on a series of plenary talks and breakout sessions on protective strategies and community wealth building — emphasizing how communities must not only fight gentrification but also improve their neighborhoods on their own terms.
