Preserving Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing in Chicago

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

People of color and low-income people are being displaced from Chicago's north side and from the city overall in huge numbers. ONE Northside is working on a campaign to preserve naturally occurring affordable housing that aims 1. to pass citywide legislation that would regulate the sale of rental housing and 2. that would generate revenue for those sales by taxing activities that spur gentrification. In this session, we will outline the policy proposal and our action plan, and will hear from participants about their solutions to displacement.
