All About the (Fall) 540Gentrification Conference | October 20

540WMain Communiversity presents:

540WMain Gentrification (Fall) Conference

Saturday October 20th // 10am-4pm

Dear Community,

We are pleased to formally announce the fall edition of the 540WMain Gentrification Conference

In March 2018 540WMain Communiversity, City Roots Community Land Trust, 441 Ministries and the Beechwood Neighborhood Coalition held an inaugural sold out conference on gentrification in the City of Rochester. Based on this success and community feedback our planning committee has moved forward with this fall edition of the conference to be held at the Thomas P. Ryan Center in the Beechwood Neighborhood.

Fall Theme

Themed “Who Are the Gentrified” our fall conference will continue the discussion around the history of gentrification in Rochester neighborhoods. Throughout the day we will highlight the stories of individuals in our community affected by gentrification and bring together leaders, developers, and residents of our community to learn about what is currently being done to counter displacement, find better solutions, and determine a collective path forward.

This engaging and hands on conference will be co-facilitated by two veteran teachers and community leaders, Calvin Eaton Founder and Executive Director of 540WMain Communiversity and Shane Wiegand from the Beechwood Neighborhood Coalition and City Roots Community Land Trust.

Register online today ($6) // Open to all
