Learning from Chinatown’s History: Connecting Past & Present Housing Struggles

An urbanIDEA forum on Gordon Chin’s Building Community, Chinatown Style


Thursday August 6th, 2015 | 6-8pm

Bayanihan Community Center | 1010 Mission Street, San Francisco

As the fight over the right to stay in the Bay Area rages around us, join urbanIDEA for a special event in our 2015 Forum Series featuring Gordon Chin’s new book, Building Community, Chinatown Style.

Activists and thinkers NTanya Lee and Oscar Grande will discuss the ways that Chinatown’s history, as told by Gordon, can help us understand the contemporary urban housing dilemma locally and across the region. Join us as we explore how lessons and organizing strategies from past housing crises and fights for neighborhoods connect to today’s community struggles and the question of Who Can Afford to Live in SF.
