May Membership Meeting

Central Durham is in the midst of major physical, social, and economic transition. After decades of languishing, Downtown Durham is now thriving with investment, new businesses, and activity. However, as desire to live near downtown grows, we are witnessing a fundamental change in the look, feel, and composition of its surrounding neighborhoods.

Join the People’s Alliance at our May Membership Meeting, May 19, Center for Responsible Lending (Temple Building) 302 W. Main Street, Durham, 27701, for a discussion on gentrification and neighborhood change in the central city.

The discussion will include: building a common understanding of what the term “gentrification” means, looking at the history of disinvestment and racial residential segregation in central Durham, presenting data on neighborhood change to better understand where and how gentrification is happening, and examining what tools are available to individuals and community groups to help ensure a diverse and inclusive central city in the years to come. The discussion is co-sponsored by People’s Durham.
