Squeezed Out: The Experience of Diversity, Gentrification and Growth in Portland

Squeezed Out: The Experience of Diversity, Gentrification and Growth in Portland

Please join me and the Civil Rights Section of the Oregon State Bar at our free public forum, titled Squeezed Out: The Experience of Diversity, Gentrification and Growth in Portland. The presentation will take place at the Kennedy School in NE Portland on May 27, 2015 at 7:00 pm.  Don’t be late, as we expect quite a crowd. This presentation will feature two poignant short films about the paradox of development in N/NE Portland, following by a panel discussion. New and old residents of N/NE Portland will learn about the history of their neighborhood and the different meanings of the term “gentrification.”

The short films are:

“Future: Portland”: Black community leaders talking about making a home in Portland.

“What Happened?”: Highlights black and white Portlanders’ different experiences of economic development in NE Portland.

The films will be followed by a panel discussion with Llondyn Elliott, one of the student film makers; Karl Dinkelspiel, a representative from the City of Portland Housing Bureau; and Rukaiyah Adams from Future: Portland.
