Gentrification in East L.A.

Location: Jepson 122

Time: 5:15 PM - 5:35 PM

Can we really solve homelessness by providing resources? Or is there a root cause that we have to address?


We are exploring the social change issues of gentrification in Boyle Heights in LA to learn the perspectives and truth of what people are experiencing. Some of the key questions that we will be looking at are, What are the causes of new developments in the community? What are the long term effects of residents living in the community? What are the stories of both sides of gentrification? What are the benefits and consequences of new developments? With this information we hope to share and open a door for others to be aware of the impacts of gentrification.
