Billboard Unveiling: August 2, 5pm (Reception for Carving Through Borders Exhibition at 7pm)

"Blooming In The Midst of Gentrification" is a collaboration between youth from People Organizing to Demand Environmental & Economic Rights (PODER), Galeria De La Raza and CultureStrike. The young activists from PODER collaborated with CultureStrike artists Susa Cortez and Julio Salgado on a billboard that portrayed some of the things they are doing to fight back against gentrification. They specifically wanted to highlight the #PUEBLOTE campaign where PODER has organized with Mission District residents to reclaim public lands for community use based on community planning efforts that bring together the knowledge and experience of neighborhood residents.

PODER’s mission is to organize with residents of Southeast San Francisco to work on local solutions to issues facing low income communities and communities of color. Through the PUEBLOTE (PUEBLO +LOTE) campaign, PODER is organizing with neighborhood residents to place public lands in the people's hands. PODER is a membership based organization that works to build the leadership of families to organize for environmental and economic justice.
