About

Join Harrison Neighborhood Association (HNA) as we take a deeper look into the topic of gentrification and its implications for the Harrison neighborhood.

Come hear from Neeraj Mehta, the director of community programs at the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota, and adjunct faculty at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Neeraj has a masters degree in public affairs from the Humphrey School and was a 2011-2013 Bush Foundation Leadership Fellow. He is passionate about building stronger, healthier and more racially and economically just communities throughout the Twin Cities region, but especially in North Minneapolis where he lives with his wife and two sons.

Gentrification is an especially timely topic as Harrison begins to confront the changes that are sure to come with the construction of two new light rail lines. How do we ensure Harrison residents are not displaced by rising rents and property taxes? How can we shape new development so that it benefits current residents and business owners? Are there policies that we can advocate for that will help us achieve these goals? Each month we will tackle these questions, and more, as we invite experts on the topic to share their insights and engage residents in in-depth, solution-seeking discussions.

Snacks and beverages will be provided!
