SAJE Gentrification Slideshow

In New York City, US Politics on June 7, 2006 at 5:29 pm

SAJE, Strategic Actions for a Just Economy, released earlier this week a slideshow briefly discussing the roots of gentrification in Los Angeles.  The slideshow is a good primer on the very complex issue.  (SAJE, a very respected and respectable organization, is also celebrating its 10-year anniversary.)  For more background on gentrification, check out this Brookings Institution report (pdf) or this scary take on gentrification from Columbia professor Lance Freeman.  Mark Winston Griffith from NEDAP in New York City also discusses the role predatory/extortionist mortgage lending plays in the gentrification process at this DMI Blog post.
