Against Housing Dispossession: Resistance Narratives, Cartographies, and Practices
Tuesday, March 29, 2022, 6:00-8:00 PM In Person / On Line,

This panel explores the anti-gentrification efforts of residents and neighborhood groups in the South Bronx, the immigrant activism that led to the largest anti-eviction movement in Spain, and critical maps, narratives, and tools documenting dispossession and resistance in gentrifying landscapes in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York City.

Terra Graziani is a researcher, tenants' rights activist, and founder of the Los Angeles chapter of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project
