Join ACE and Reclaim Roxbury for a crash course on gentrification, government regulations, developer lies, a history of struggle, and the current fight for the soul of our hood.

This is a development 101 training to give Roxbury residents tools to resist displacement and to fight back against developers.

Event Schedule:

10am – 12pm – Workshop on foundational concepts to elevate our participation in discussions on all these new buildings popping up around our area. This is a test run for a training model we want to make more widely available to residents at large, so look out for future renditions!

12:pm – 2pm – Updated Toxic tour of key sites in the urban renewel effort in Roxbury, as well as historic battle grounds. Forecast says there will be rain in the AM…so we might be in the clear. If the rain doesnt let up, we will cut the program short and find another day to invite y’all to engage with the sites and history.

*********SPACE CHANGE: moved to the Resurrection Lutheran Church because of a higher number of potential attendees than orignally planned.. ******************
