7th District Roundtable Meeting

The topic of the meeting is “Neighborhoods versus Hoods”. Our goal is to find common ground as neighbors. We hope to have open and truthful dialogue around the issues of Gentrification. If we as neighbors don’t begin to have this conversation amongst ourselves, we will continue to allow others to influence whether or not we live as neighbors in a friendly and peaceful neighborhood and appreciate the diversity of our community. We would like to put the Neighbors back into the Hoods. @EDI (701 N 25th Street)
