The main talking points include why this is the prime time for a conversation around displacement, how we should be talking about displacement, and- perhaps most importantly- how we shouldn’t be talking about displacement and gentrification. The report urges the building of public will as opposed to just working on building political will for the issues of gentrification and displacement. To advance policies that will support the issues there needs to be an effort to navigate and combat the dominant narratives. The goals stated in this report surround the need to build up a long-term plan to combat displacement and gentrification by changing the dialogue of the issue, centering it through a lens of equity, and addressing affordable housing shortages.
