“I think it’s important to defend yourself and stay strong, because it’s difficult to move around especially when there are not enough economic resources. Now, the rent is really high and one has to earn at least $5,000, which is nearly impossible. Protections have supported me immensely because my economic situation has changed very much and knowing my rights and how to defend myself and how
to be stable in one place has supported me very much.”
— Beatriz Mendez, CJJC Member
“This report shows that there are many reasonable policies at the local and regional levels that can help hold back the tide of gentrification and modify the worst effects of urban transformation.”
—Dr. Richard Walker, Professor Emeritus of Geography, University of California, Berkeley
