As development and investment spreads throughout Los Angeles, current housing and economic conditions have impacted communities across the city. As stakeholders in South Los Angeles begin to see development in their communities, the urgency of these matters has prompted community members, planners and activists to organize and collectively seek solutions, resources and tools to mitigate the impacts of economic injustice.
The purpose of this panel/workshop, part of APA Los Angeles' Dialogo series, is to continue the discussion on the following three important topics in relation to gentrification and the South Los Angeles Community: housing, transportation policy, and economic development; and provide community planners, members and activists with tools to combat gentrification and other impacts of economic injustice in South Los Angeles.
