Video: Bree Jones | How to Revitalize a Neighborhood Without Gentrification
The housing market can be vexing: while some neighborhoods get ridiculously expensive and price out longtime residents, others have historic homes sitting vacant without demand. Equitable housing developer and TED Fellow Bree Jones shares how she found a way to revitalize neighborhoods experiencing hyper-vacancy while preventing gentrification — supporting home buyers and transforming communities along the way.
Bree Jones is the founder of Parity, an equitable development company building social movements to revitalize neighborhoods experiencing hyper-vacancy and abandonment. Jones is contributing to the growth of undervalued neighborhoods through a community ownership model aimed at healing place-based trauma.
