This video seeks to define gentrification & explore its impact on the Sunset Park community. The video includes interviews with community residents, organizers, & academics who have direct experience with & insights about the issue. We seek to highlight the necessity of maintaining an affordable, culturally vibrant community & to address the challenges of resisting gentrification.
We hope this video can be used as a tool for community organizing. The issues in the video are affecting residents throughout the neighborhood & we hope this video can bring more people into the fight against gentrification. We plan to screen it at block parties, neighborhood events, schools & churches in order to provide people with the information they need to take action.
