"Lead Us Not Into Gentrification: Development, Displacement, & The Tale of Two Winston-Salem’s"

Winston-Salem is experiencing a renewal that is skipping over the least of these. As we boast of being one of the best U.S. cities for economically mobile people to relocate to, poverty remains nearly intractable for those born into it here.
Does this reality mean that gentrification is on the horizon? If so, can people of good conscious-both vulnerable & privileged- be a force that pushes against its winds of displacement? What role can the broader community play in redressing & healing the historic wounds of racial injustice & economic dispossession? How can we advocate for & create renewal efforts that center the most vulnerable sections of our city? Can our city truly be a place of "peace" as long as there are "two Winston-Salems"?
This FREE training will explore these questions & more!
