How to Kill a City: Peter Moskowitz with Alicia Boyd

The term gentrification has become a buzzword to describe the changes in urban neighborhoods across the country, but we don’t realize just how threatening it is. It means more than the arrival of trendy shops, much-maligned hipsters, and expensive lattes. The very future of American cities as vibrant, equitable spaces hangs in the balance. Joining Peter Moskowitz will be longtime housing justice activist Alicia Boyd (Movement to Protect the People, Brooklyn Anti-Gentrification Network).
