Economic inequality is growing across our nation, and right here in JP. We see up close how hard it is for people to live in Jamaica Plain on low wages; how small businesses here struggle as chains gain a foothold; how neighbors get pushed out by rising rents and condo conversions; how this impacts young people growing up in a quickly-changing environment.
What can we do right here in Jamaica Plain?
