Connections: Who is affected by gentrification?

When gentrification happens in our neighborhoods, who are the people most affected? Who is pushed out?

540WMain Community Learning Academy is working with a number of organizations to host a new edition of a conference on the subject of gentrification in Rochester. They'll explore what is being done to counter displacement and find solutions. We preview that conference with our guests:
