Economic growth is good, right? Neighborhood revitalization is beneficial, right? Well, there are two sides to gentrification, and in Denver, many perspectives.

Join housing leaders, advocacy officials, the press and PRSA members for The Good and Bad of Gentrification on June 28 at the Denver Press Club.

Listen, learn and add to the conversation on gentrification and what redevelopment in Denver’s growing neighborhoods mean for established residents and new arrivals. How does the promise of investment, infrastructure renovation and improved schools conflict with rising rents, involuntary displacement and cultural disruption?

Social Perspectives: Conversation, Debate and Understanding is an ongoing series sponsored by PRSA, the Denver Post and the Denver Press Club that brings together key players and prominent perspectives on social and political issues that lawmakers are discussing, the media is covering and Coloradans are experiencing.

Date: Wednesday, June 28, 6:30 p.m. (5:30 social hour)

Place: Denver Press Club, 1330 Glenarm Place

Cost: $5 ticket includes light refreshments and cash bar
