What is “gentrification?” And how does it affect the Kensington, Northern Liberties, Girard, Poplar and other adjoining neighborhoods?
The Citizen and The Free Library of Philadelphia’s Center for Public Life invite long-term neighborhood residents and newcomers—as well as anyone interested in how our neighborhoods grow and develop—to talk about shaping their community into one that serves a greater good for everyone. Explore ideas around changing neighborhoods and what it means to be part of a community, and work towards actionable steps with community advocates, stakeholders and residents.
This event will be moderated by Diana Lind, Managing Director of Penn’s Fels Policy Research Initiative and a Citizen board member.
