Join us for a workshop on gentrification presented by Chicanos Unidos and Protege Santa Ana - Against Gentrification. Gentrification is a process in which local, working class people and businesses get pushed out by developers, realtors, and investors to make room for wealthier people and larger businesses. This process is particularly harmful to working class communities of color, who are met with increased policing, unaffordable housing and evictions, and the overall cleansing of our cultures.
We welcome you to bring your own snacks or snacks to share! There is a large free parking lot directly behind the building off of 16th St.
