Third Anti-Displacement Task Force Wide Meeting Postponed for Special Presentation

[UPDATE] Due to scheduling confilicts, the Mitigating Small Business Displacement Team will be presented by City of Somerville project staff.

Join us on February 15th, 2024 as the City of Somerville Anti-Displacement Task Force presents a virtual night of Uplifting Youth Experiences: a special set of presentations from the Department of Racial & Social Justice's Youth League and students from the Harvard Kennedy School, John F. Kennedy School of Government. The presenting groups will be providing the task force and the community an opportunity to listen to research and perspectives on displacement and gentrification from our youth.

The Harvard Kennedy School of Government will be discussing the findings of their strategic study: “Mitigating Small Business Displacement in Somerville, MA”. Over the course of the study, the researchers spoke to Somerville business operators, developers, and other stakeholders to gain a comprehensive understanding of the obstacles facing small business owners in Somerville. The Department of Racial & Social Justice Youth League will present their research into displacement and gentrification in the City of Somerville and conclude their presentation with a guided reflection exercise. Following each presentation there will be a question-and-answer session where members of the public are encouraged to join the Anti-Displacement Task Force in engaging in discussion around what Anti-Displacement looks like for Somerville from the perspective of our youth.
