The question of place, belonging, and home is integral to the question of survival that people of color face through displacement, militaristic policing and deportation. The Strategies for Staying Power Network Gathering will combat cultural and physical displacement, strengthen resistance to place-based anti-black racism and the forces of gentrification, and rebuke the treatment of bodies as property. We will build a shared understanding and definition of displacement as a systemic problem rooted in white supremacy and capitalism, explore possible cultural strategies for resisting displacement, share techniques from locations historically and currently encountering displacement, such as Detroit, Boston, New York, Oakland, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Palestine, Northern Uganda, Haiti, and New Orleans. With this context set, we will design and prototype creative strategies for staying power. Participants will come away with a learning network focused on building shared language around policy approaches, creative strategies against displacement, and a lens for approaching displacement as a human rights issue. This is an open network gathering.
