540WMain Community Learning Academy presents:
The first annual Rochester Gentrification Conference
Saturday March 24 // 10-2 PM
We are pleased to formally announce the first annual Rochester Gentrification Conference. In collaboration with City Roots Land Trust we are hosting this half day community powered education conference on Saturday March 24, 2018 at 441 Parsells Avenue (next to New City Cafe).
This conference is curated around 540WMain’s popular Let’s Talk About Gentrification Conversation in a Community Room that took place in late 2016.
This year’s theme will revolve around the essential question:
How do we promote inner city development without the displacement of our most vulnerable community neighbors?
And will see us alongside the community unpacking and engaging in candid discussions, mini presentations, and a panel discussion around poverty, gentrification, tenants rights, and development in downtown Rochester and beyond.
