Fast-growing cities continue to grapple with displacement of historically disadvantaged communities. Affordable housing, support for cultural organizations, funding for social service networks, and services for vulnerable small businesses all play a role in combating displacement. Seattle's Office of Planning and Community Development hosts a panel discussion looking at unique local and national approaches that are successfully responding to displacement pressures and supporting communities seeking to remain in place.

Panelists:

Monica Bravo, West Side Community Organization, St. Paul

Gregory Davis, Rainier Beach Action Coalition, Seattle

Nicole Johnson, 1000 Friends of Oregon, Portland

Tony Lamb, Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Portland

Chris Schildt, All-In Cities Anti-Displacement Policy Network, Oakland
