Inclusion, Equity & Environmental Gentrification with Aaron Mair

The Discovery Center
Oct 25, 2018 10:00am - 1:00pm

Join us for a conversation about Inclusion, Equity and Environmental Gentrification with Aaron Mair, past national president of the Sierra Club. Can we green communities without displacing residents? Green initiatives may address pollution or bring sustainable solutions (gardens, parks, greenways, bike lanes) to a community, but often times these initiatives also increase local property values and attract wealthier residents to a previously polluted or disenfranchised neighborhood.

This conversation will bring environmental and housing advocates to the table to have an honest conversation about how we can work together to build green, sustainable, and affordable communities for everyone. PACDC’s Director of Programs Pam Bridgeforth will participate in a panel discussion at this event.

Morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided
