On Oct 28, 2021, the UWLN Equitable Development Collaborative is hosting a peer exchange about community partnerships and actions to fight displacement. The peer call will include a panel-like discussion between UWLN collaborative members and our expert speaker sharing how organizations are teaming up to fight against displacement.
Guest Speaker: We will be joined by Cameron Herrington of Living Cully, a multi-organization partnership based in Portland, OR. This unique partnership works to improve the quality of life for people of color and low-income people in Northeast Portland’s Cully neighborhood and ensures that Cully will always be a place where people of color and low-income people can live and thrive. Their work focuses on both community-led neighborhood improvements and robust efforts to combat gentrification and displacement. Cameron will share information about various Living Cully initiatives, including the “Community-Led Development District” which aims to create a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district in the Cully neighborhood of Portland, OR to fund community-led projects.
Moderators: Arthur Johnson (Lower Ninth Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development) and Lubna Ahmed (Groundwork Denver)
