This resource from the Prevention Institute addresses the question: “What can people working on “healthy community” issues—like active transportation, parks, healthy food, planning, public health, healthcare, and more—do in their own work to improve community conditions without contributing to gentrification and displacement?”
- Addresses the public health impacts of displacement
- Summarizes risk factors for and resilience factors against displacement
- Provides strategies to avoid displacement as well as case studies of organizations, researchers and communities advocating for and/or enacting them
The goal of the report is to raise awareness about the role that different organizations play in displacement and to create further collaboration for multi-sector action.
