Talk of the Town: What Does Affordability Mean to You?
The term affordability is relative to each individual based on values and lived experiences. If we are on the same page regarding this sensitive topic, we can begin to understand the perspectives of individuals and communities.
We will develop a shared language for Affordability, Gentrification, and Displacement to guide future conversations and also explore ways to leverage community resources and relationships that address community needs.
Refreshments, childcare, and transportation will be provided.
