Tonight we offer a look at a growing number of locals discussing the impact of civic policy geared toward speculative economic development above all else.
Accordingly . . .
TKC SUNDAY NIGHT CONTEMPLATION!!! CHECK THIS UPCOMING KANSAS CITY BOOK CLUB CHAT TRENDING AMONG LOCALS DEMANDING TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE IMPACT OF GENTRIFICATION!!!
Like it or not, hundreds of locals talking about development policy might not be a good sign as politicos are soon to go back to voters for more funding and bonds to boost the prospects of luxury condos and development districts.

How to Kill a City - Midtown
Hosted by SURJ KC - Showing Up for Racial Justice, Kansas City
What is gentrification? Why does it happen? Read “How to Kill a City” by Peter Moskowitz (Nation Books, 2017) and come ready to discuss how the gentrification narratives detailed in the book connect to our own neighborhood experience here in KC. Ultimately we will look to develop action steps to take on gentrifying forces, including those we are complicit in, wherever we live. Due to limited library copies and hardcover prices, please try to share the book. If you are able, buy multiple copies and distribute in your own network or let us know you have extra so we can help all who want to read this book get their hands on it. See you there!
This book study is located in Midtown KCMO. We have 2 additional book studies in Mission, KS and Northeast KCMO.
