Logan Square Residents Learn About Gentrification in January 2015

Local community organization Somos Logan Square is offered a series of four seminars to inform members of the Logan Square community about gentrification. The events took place January 14-24, 2015, at neighborhood churches.

As reported in the NEIU Independent: "The Case of Who Is Logan Square" (February 1, 2015) covered the series and quoted St. Luke's Logan Square pastor Erik Christensen: "The speakers did a great job today of naming that gentrification is driven by a process of valuation, and that valuation is actually a social construct … Gentrification is at its core driven by an engine that works because it says some people and some neighborhoods are worth more than others."
