Gentrification in America has been a highly relevant issue recently, especially here in Portland. With Portland being the 4th fastest gentrifying city, I thought I’d go out and see what Portland was like before gentrification truly set in. I decided to interview my grandma Priscilla, who has been living in Portland all her life and feels strongly about the issue.

Check out this link to hear the full interview.

While we still have a lot of careful work to do regarding gentrification in Portland, it’s important to focus on a solution. Listening to the voices of the communities affected by gentrification is a strong start. After this interview, I realized how important it is to listen to the voices of the past generations to help create a solution for the future.
