  • 1. Gentrification of the Mission District By: Hiya qare
  • 2. What is gentrification? “The restoration of run-down urban areas by the middle class (resulting in the displacement of low-income residents)”  http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s= gentrification
  • 3. Protest against the gentrification of the Mission District.
  • 4. Location of the Mission District  Located in east central San Francisco  Also known as “inner mission” neighbor to Potrero Hill  Part of San Francisco’s supervisorial districts 6, 9, and 10.
  • 5. History  Spanish missionaries during the late 18th century.  Spanish priest Father Francisco Palou founded Mission San Francisco de Asis on June 29, 1776.  Ranchos owned by Spanish Mexican families.  Lands around mission church became a primary area for attractions like bull and bear fighting, and horse races.
  • 6. Ethnicity Trends  During 19th and 20th century Irish and German immigrant workers moved into the area.  During the 1940s-60s large number of Mexican immigrants moved into the area influencing a heavy Latino population in the district.  During the 1960s central and south American immigrants began to out number the Mexicans.  Gang affiliations emerged during the 1980s.
  • 7. Current History  From the late 1990s to 2010, hipsters began to emerge which initially started gentrification.  House prices and rent immediately began to rise.  Number of Latino middle class families began moving to the outer mission or the east and south bay.  In the last decade, the Latino population dropped by 20%.
  • 8. Reaction To Gentrification • The antgentrification was created. • This consists of an art exhibits by artists who experienced the negative effects of gentrification.
  • 9. Recent Protests Against Gentrification  December 9, 2013  Google commuter bus blocked due to antigentrification protestors.  Organized by Heart of the City.
  • 10. Recent Protests Against Gentrification  October 12, 2013  Took place on 24th and Mission St.  Put on by a cross section of residents, merchants, local organizations, and artists.
  • 11. Gentrification=Racism  Middle class and minority families are displaced because of increase in rent.  Politicians justify these acts as a way to provide jobs and new investments for areas containing high unemployment, poverty, and neglect.  Developed out of the national wave “urban decay.”  People supporting gentrification are the real estate actors who want the rent paid by middle class white people.
  • 12. Conclusion In my opinion, we as human beings need to end the separation amongst the human race through ways like gentrification and differences in social-classes. We must instead preserve and admire the differences in cultures that we are lucky to experience in this country.
