At The Citizen’s inaugural Ideas We Should Steal Festival, Cat Goughnour gave us a virtual tour of her home of Portland, Oregon, the most gentrified city in America—and her solutions for helping to keep communities intact, despite the push for development.
“We can solve issues of unemployment, crime, all these things that plague our cities,” Goughnour said. “Folks want community first. They said, ‘If we have each other, we can solve all these things together, and make sure our people can move up from the bottom.'”
