organizations -- Strategic Actions for a Just Economy (SAJE), the Centerfor the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG), and Self-Help Graphics and Art (SHG) -- are joining forces to challenge gentrification in this community through the We Shall Not Be Moved Project.

>this resistance has been chronicled in poster art.
