San Francisco housing activist (Tenderloin Housing Clinic) and author Randy Shaw is here with a book all too timely for Seattle, Generation Priced Out: Who Gets To Live in the New Urban America (University of California Press).
“Generation Priced Out shows how African Americans, Latinos, and other tenants of color are battling displacement and gentrification. I urge everyone who is concerned about crafting local strategies to read Randy Shaw’s passionate book.”—Donna Mossman.
“Working people across America increasingly spend hours commuting to jobs in cities where they can no longer afford to live. Shaw shows how people are mobilizing to reverse this trend and describes how urban areas can and must stop the pricing out of the working and middle class.”—Deepak Bhargava.
