Join us for the first dialogue of the Bridging Blocks series, a new dialogue program made in partnership with WHYY and the Free Library!
Philadelphia is changing. Many neighborhoods do not look or feel like they did 20 years ago. Was this change inevitable? To some, gentrification is a dirty word. To others, it’s the promise of a better quality of life. Join WHYY and the Kingsessing Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia for a Community Conversation as we explore the harm and hope that gentrification can cause and discuss ways to balance continuity and change. Dinner will be provided. Register here!
