The inevitability of displacement – social, economic and political – has been a source of intense debate as cities, led by individual homeowners, public tax incentives, and direct public and private investment, have seen their neighborhoods change. However, many local governments, community-based organizations, tenant associations, and neighborhood advocacy groups have resisted the inevitability of displacement through affordable housing development, public space initiatives and community engagement efforts. This panel explores the ways that different communities across the country have focused on engaging and supporting existing residents as neighborhoods change to understand what it means to stay and on what terms residents remain in their communities as a result.
