#TBT to last Thursday in front of the Apollo theater in Harlem, when my hubby was photobombed as I was trying to take his picture. We were both frustrated because, she could’ve at least waited, walked round us, or said excuse me. But, as we quickly calmed downed, we realized that the photo fits the theme perfectly. #Thisisgentrification :

Issue #148 is out! The lead article is about how many cities are experiencing crises of affluence. “[New York] is in imminent danger of becoming something it has never been before: unremarkable. It is approaching a state where it is no longer a significant cultural entity but the world’s largest gated community.” hltr.co/148 #nyc #gentrification #culture #thehighlighter

Official endorsement for Angela from Black Wall Street Times. She's also the only one discussing gentrification. There is a housing crisis in district 66 and pretty soon, the diversity in this area that attracted class privileged folks will be gone. I'm voting for someone who cares about me, my husband, my children, and others like us. #angela4ok #supportwomen #supportpwcwomen #voteforteachers #tulsa #oklahoma #gentrification #dismantlewhitesupremacy

Let's keep this momentum going, friends! ALL EYES ON THESE BIDs! These boards make decisions for OUR communities and wreak havoc on everything we have known without due process. The entitlement is blatant, undeniable, and now in the LA magazine article in previous posts.
How can we continue to allow these BIDs like the North Figueroa Association to keep using our tax dollars to aid in ethnic cleansing and the displacement of so many? We cannot. With artists themselves on the board, and other gentrified artists in support of them, what hope do we have of reinstating our pride on these walls in OUR community?
This entitled colonizer mentality is something we are living with daily. We are immersed in its effects while we struggle to recognize our hoods and the businesses whose doors are not open to us. We are not welcome in our own community, and these murals represent these erasures across the board. They take our walls, they displace our people, they harass our long time legacy business owners and then offer them money to leave permanently. They make agendas to criminalize our vendors AND THEY ARE USING YOUR MONEY TO DO IT.
Our hoods are unrecognizable but the people are still here. WE ARE STILL HERE. We will not vanish without a fight, and we are ecstatic and grateful for bloggers like michaelkolhaas.org, the Boulevard Sentinel, LA magazine, @thenewyorkblvd and countless others who are showing they see the injustice and inequality and they're ready to report FACTS. We have a story to tell and we need all of you to tell it with us.

In what appears to me to be an act of pure greed, Alberta Street Gallery will be closing down after 12 years of providing homes for local artists. We have been pushed out by the landlord to charge what seems like 3x the rent to the next tenants. The original owner of the building supported the arts, and wanted us to be left alone. In his passing, his wishes were not met by his beneficiaries. This is a sad day for these great artists who toughed out the slow winter without heat in the gallery just to be kicked out right when the busy season starts. Shame on you, landlord I’ll choose to not name.. that being said, come in and show your support in the form of art sales to help these artists transition into their next ventures.

Could be reaching but this makes total sense in my head. #Colonizers go to lands that are not theirs. They #kill off the natives, #steal their property/name/identity and #destroy the evidence/truth. They see/view the #Natives/#Indigenous people as #waste so they get rid of them. What do you think is still going on all over the world today? Why do you think we have military bases in every area of the world? Even in areas that are considered our "enemies". #Gentrification

"You look a bit lost", the security guard told me, as I looked at what was left of the LIVINGbridge. "Just a bit sad", I replied. "Well nobody took care of it, so they had to take it out". The guard then walked back to the full time post of guarding the nearby parking lot. As he walked away, I thought of all the people who worked to keep the garden going, despite the opposition from those with power who'd rather see something grown from the bottom up replaced with further top down development. What could have been done with a little support, rather than, say, organizing a stop on a community tour decrying the bridge's existence? Or advocating to city council to have the garden removed? Those with influence should spend less time thinking they're right, and more time reflecting on the ways social change is possible aside from what happens to serve their own interests. Paving over a bridge that connected Edmonton residents from all walks of life, grew plants, was a space for inclusive events, and a spot for people to stop moving for a second and take a break, is not a way to improve a community. It's a tactic of gentrification, and the further displacement and removal of downtown Edmonton's existing residents and their way of life. The narrative being pushed that people didn't take care of the bridge wasn't true. It was a lie that diminished the hard work and care of many people working against a myriad of challenges. A similar narrative was deployed in justifying the removal of other downtown spaces such as the Greyhound bus station, and evicting the residents of the MacDonald Lofts. Whether it's a building, apartment or a garden, always question the reasons why it's being destroyed, and who serves to benefit from its removal. #gentrification #edmonton #historicaljeudi

#ECPJustice Gentrification. I am intimately close to the topic, having fit the bill as a gentrifier of my neighborhood in Brooklyn when I lived there in the 2000s and having written my dissertation on gentrificaiton in New York City from 1980-2000 and how it transformed the health of communities.
The process of gentrification has taken on an even more corporate, strategic, global feel in NYC over the past two decades, so much so that I hardly recognize when I am in Central Brooklyn, so much so that there is more vacant housing in luxury high rises than in low-income neighborhoods, so much so that the foreign money parked in NYC real estate has displaced nearly everything that makes a community a community: there are fewer people, fewer businesses, fewer public spaces. This hyper-corporatized gentrification has fueled the unjust housing market, where finding something affordable to rent is nearly impossible, especially for the poor and working poor who are struggling each day to live in the global capital. The public-private strategies to build "affordable housing" haven't panned out, homelessness is on the rise, and households sacrifice paying for medication or nutritious food so they can pay their landlord - more and more likely a transnational private equity group - an astronomical monthly rent.
Solutions for housing justice in NYC? Rent control; housing and community land trusts; higher taxes on second (3rd, 4th...) homes and units that are not occupied; higher wages for the working class and middle class; reduced price MetroCards for the working class; more affordable whole food options; health care for all. It's all connected. Make the connections. Link in bio to read @harpersmagazine article. #gentrification #justice #nyc #brooklyn #housing #newyork #city #cityhousing #rent #subsidizedhousing

Six years ago, I made the switch to remove as much suffering and illness from my body as possible. I had just finished a transformational experience with my body and walked on stage bearing it all at a figure competition. I was in phenomenal shape physically and began working on my mental state more deeply. I started to feel what my foods did to me. Feel the feelings of flesh and bodily secretions inside of me.
A good friend of mine was vegan and she showed me all the beautiful foods and pleasures that the plant and fungus world had to offer. It felt so amazing. I was also working towards my environmentally focused bachelor's in geography. I saw the pain of the landscape all around us. It all made sense.
The hurt these animals go through on a daily basis when we have to power to change it. The torture that we then expect to fuel our body well with. The sluggish and heavy feelings animal fat gives the body. The energy level drop when we digest animal proteins in an intestinal tract designed for plant matter. The environmental degradation taking place worldwide in spite of people like me saying they are going to make a "difference." I did want to make a difference. Everyday. So I made the decision. I chose to live my life in the best way I know how. And when I know better, I will do better still. I am still learning. Still growing. Still feeling all the things kept hidden from our culture. Somedays its too much, somedays it takes all I can muster to not scream my frustrations to the world.  If you can care about injustices, animal cruelty, racism, misoygy, inequality, elitism, gentrification, poverty, or anything else that has seen its share of outdated practises and social norms, then you can open your mind and heart to veganism and all the reasons.
These are my reasons why.

I'll be in Austin this weekend. Come out on Saturday, June 23 to say goodbye to the warehouse where I worked my ass off for ~7 years, but had a pretty good time doing it, and met so many friends in the process. This building has a lot of memories but I am glad that the organization will continue in a new location. Viva @pumpproject! Also, please consider helping support the move. Every bit helps! (www.pumpproject.org/support).

National stuff absolutely matters. But so does the local. We’ve lived here now for 3 summers. The first two summers there was a small and poky farmers market at this park/plaza. Ransom grew up playing at the (admittedly small and slightly terrifying) playground here. I used to meet my neighbors here for play dates and tea parties bc it was the only public park (besides the school) within easy walking distance. But there is a big redevelopment project coming. The city fenced it off last fall and now it sits—empty, unapproachable. There is no construction actually happening, and one of the few public spaces we have is now gone. We can still look at it, remember how we used to play there—but it’s gone. When you are 3 and 8 it’s really hard to buy into the idea that there will be a fancy park here in 2-3 years. When you are 34 it’s hard not to feel like it will be an entirely different neighborhood which will one day enjoy the perks of revitalization—and that might precisely be the point. #gentrification #prayerwalks

Repost from @thenewnola | I am Gus Bennett Jr. I am the son of Gus Bennett Sr. This house has been in my family for 32 years. I have lived in this house for nine years post-Katrina. I first moved here when my father fell sick. I am New Orleans.



“I am New Orleans.” is a portraiture series for multi-generational New Orleanians and the homes of their ancestors. Post-Katrina led many of us back to our “family home” to live; some for three months, some for three years; some in 2006, some in 2016. Some live there now and some have since moved on. We were called back to these homes to rebuild our lives and our city. It is our job to tell our history. It is our job to write our future. Our ancestors built New Orleans and it is our job to rebuild it.

Great discussion with @neal.gloria yesterday about anti-displacement strategies and revitalization in our communities that are most vulnerable to gentrification and displacement.

Thank you @comcast and CML for the opportunity to speak on this issue!
