Change is Not Always Good

This explain how a place can be great as it is and then people can come and gentrify it and change is not good all the time.

When I made this meme, I was thinking about how a place can be great as it is, but when developers raise prices that force people out, it completely change for the worst. So basically, this explains that the change associated with gentrification isn’t good all the time.

In the link above it kinda touches on the point that I’m making. One thing I read in the link said It doesn’t “matter where you live. You’re displacing someone, and making income segregation worse.”

That is one example of how places that have been gentrified can be made worst.

Why Gentrify Us?

This explains how we can't succeed together if we don't come together.

During the process of creating this meme my idea was to push the issue about how if we don’t come together, we can’t succeed as a whole. Allowing gentrification for push others out forces us to fail.

No No No!

How we should come together and stand up to the people who comes in our neighborhood and tries to push us out (who tries to gentrify us)

This meme was put together to explain how we should come together and stand up to the people (who try to gentrify us) who come in our neighborhood and tries to push us out by raising property values and taxes in the area for personal profit.

Gentrifiers Be Like…

How people who gentrifies lies and deceive the people who are being gentrified.

This meme explains how people who gentrify lie and deceive the people who are being gentrified. Often, communities are told that development will make their neighborhoods better, but often it prices them out of their homes.
