Does displacement necessarily have to follow gentrification of long-distressed neighborhoods? Can we intentionally prevent that domino effect from happening when new investments are made in communities seeking renewal? And if we can prevent displacement, what do those practices look like?

In this interactive training session of the 2018 National Environmental Justice Conference, Groundwork staff and consultants will explore answers to these questions informed by Groundwork USA’s latest white paper, which articulates a restorative, trauma-informed approach to equitable community development.
