What is gentrification? Why does it happen? Read “How to Kill a City” by Peter Moskowitz (Nation Books, 2017) and come ready to discuss how the gentrification narratives detailed in the book connect to our own neighborhood experience here in KC. Ultimately we will look to develop action steps to take on gentrifying forces, including those we are complicit in, wherever we live. Due to limited library copies and hardcover prices, please try to share the book. If you are able, buy multiple copies and distribute in your own network or let us know you have extra so we can help all who want to read this book get their hands on it. See you there!
