Sometimes new stores, restaurants and cultural attractions are welcomed by everyone. But as many working-class areas in Los Angeles gentrify and housing costs rise, more developments are facing a backlash. What signals to long-time residents that improvements are for them and not for wealthier outsiders? Can a neighborhood’s quality of life improve without leading to displacement of the very people who have worked hardest and waited longest for the changes?
Come out and join the conversation about whether investment in neighborhoods like West Adams, Elysian Valley and Boyle Heights can benefit long-time residents and newcomers alike. This live broadcast will be hosted by KCRW’s Saul Gonzalez.
