How can we resist and organize against gentrification to preserve community and history? 

This discussion, led by Public Scholar Mieko Tarrius, seeks to initiate an interactive dialogue on the ways race informs gentrification and how communities get organized to fight back.

During this panel discussion, we will hear from the following panelists about their experience: Dr. Margaret Marietta Ramirez, Assistant Professor at Simon Fraser University; Dr. Ted Rutland, Associate Professor at Concordia University; Simone Chen, Worker-member, CoopĂ©rative de SolidaritĂ© La Place Commune (Park Extension) & Member, Parc-Ex Anti-Eviction Mapping Project; Wawa Li, former Chinatown Working Group member, independent fashion designer and student at Concordia University; and Andy Hiep Vu, Urban planner, Montreal's Chinatown Roundtable.  

This event is the follow-up to the workshop Gentrification and Students' Housing Rights.

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
