540WMain Communiversity presents:
540WMain Gentrification (Fall) Conference
Saturday October 20th // 10am-4pm
We are pleased to formally announce the fall edition of the 540WMain Gentrification Conference
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.
