Interested in meeting other DSA members and democratic socialists in your work or home neighborhood? Come to a DSA Neighborhood Hangout!
Join your comrades to discuss and deepen our understanding of the role of the state in coercively and violently displacing marginalized people from areas targeted for development with the recommended readings below:
- When Domestic Violence Victims Call Police for Help--and Get Evicted Instead (Annamarya Scaccia). CW: assault. From across the country, examples of how selective enforcement of nuisance laws against people considered "undesirable' by landlords and the police can disproportionately impact survivors of gender-based violence. https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/mbqvpn/when-domestic-violence-victims-call-police-for-helpand-get-evicted-instead
- LA's Black Enclave Buffeted by Police Pressure and Tech-Driven Gentrification (Rory Carroll) “Whether or not [gang injunctions were] an original tool of gentrification, it became a component. People feel fear about being in their communities so they work very hard to stay out of sight or just move out.” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/dec/01/venice-gentrification-oakwood-african-american-california
Please RSVP and we’ll connect you with the hosts. This will be in a lawn area of the park so bring a blanket or a seat for comfort!
