HOMELESSNESS AND GENTRIFICATION Walking Tour with CCAP – Carnegie Community Action Project for 7th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver on Saturday Oct 30, 2010

Walking Tour
HOMELESSNESS AND GENTRIFICATION with CCAP

Saturday October 30, 11:30am–1pm
Meet at steps of Carnegie Community Centre, 401 Main

Learn for yourself how gentrification causes homelessness in the Downtown Eastside. Led by Wendy Pedersen and volunteers from the Carnegie Community Action Project (CCAP), this walking tour will go past new market housing that is pushing up land values and rents in 100 year old hotels. Learn how low-income residents are organizing to slow gentrification and preserve the good things about their community while working for more social housing. CCAP is building consensus within the community for a vision of the Downtown Eastside that hopefully the city will adopt. Visioning reports and information on gentrification can be found on their blog: www.ccapvancouver.wordpress.com. $10 for non-residents, pay what you can for local residents
