Continuity and Change: Can Gentrification Work for All?

 

Details:

Philadelphia is changing. Many neighborhoods do not look or feel like they did 20 years ago. Was this change inevitable?

 

To some, gentrification is a dirty word. To others, it’s the promise of a better quality of life. Join WHYY and the Kingsessing Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia for a Community Conversation as we explore the harm and hope that gentrification can cause and discuss ways to balance continuity and change. Dinner will be provided. 

 

Host:

Amir Richardson, WHYY's Community Conversations Convener

Ben Remsen, Kingsessing Branch Librarian.

Moderator:         

Christopher "Flood The Drummer" Norris, WHYY’s Managing Editor for Community & Engagement.
