Casa Solidaria del Sur/Solidarity House of the South, Dreamers of South Central LA and Cielo galleries/studios are all located on stolen Tongva Land. We recognize that our resistance against gentrification is interconnected with the Tongva/Native Peoples resistance to continued colonization and genoside.
As we/our communites resist gentrification we ask:
Who was here before us?
How did we get here?
Who is here now?
Who ‘owns’ the properties in South Central?
Who is posting all those ‘We Buy Houses/Fast Cash’ signs all over South Central?
Who is activley resisting gentrification in South Central?
Do you know something about the history of South Central LA?
Are you concerned about the gentrification of South Central?
Have you experienced gentrification in your hood?
Do you have information you would like to share?
We invite people from South Central and beyond to join us as we discuss gentrification and make our own creative signs to post as a direct response to the bombardment of ‘We Buy Houses/Fast Cash’ signs all over South Central LA.
