Community Conversations Series
Uptown Church and Uplift Community High School partner twice a year to host a public conversation for the neighborhood. Our Fall 2019 topic is Urban Revitalization. Uptown is experiencing quite a bit of change right now. Buzzwords used in many discussions around these shifts in the neighborhood are: gentrification, urban renewal, redevelopment, and displacement.
This discussion will feature a diverse panel of powerful and intelligent voices that help us address these issues we face as a community.
Our panel for the evening includes:
Reporter, Chicago Reporter
Executive Director, Uptown United
Associate Professor and Chair, Latino and Latin American Studies, DePaul University
Assistant Commissioner, Dept. of Planning and Development, City of Chicago
Join us for this free event as we seek out ways to come together and strengthen our city. Free parking is available at Uplift Community High School. Light refreshments will be served.
