Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Since 2000, gentrification and cultural displacement have grown in American cities, while many low-income neighborhoods and towns remain starved of investment. Gentrification is a process where areas with traditionally lower incomes and home values receive massive levels of new investment, adding amenities, raising home values and bringing in new upper-income residents. In many of these neighborhoods, NCRC has also found that cultural displacement, when members of a specific racial or ethnic group are pushed out, accompanies this revitalization.
This report finds that between 2000 and 2012 over 1,000 neighborhoods in our most vibrant and successful cities have gentrified and over 135,000 people were displaced. But that is just a part of the story. Scroll down for perspectives from some of those cities that highlight what the data doesn’t show, that the process of gentrification and displacement is a constant war of ideas about what a community is and what it might become.
