Inequality Forum: Thursday April 9th

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?
