Who Has a Say?

Who Has a Say and Who Benefits?

Essays coming Fall 2019

These essays will focus on influence and power in mixed-income interventions and how to broaden the range of beneficiaries from mixed-income communities. Questions explored include: How can cross-sector efforts generate a greater commitment to equitable development? How can residents and other community stakeholders who are traditionally excluded from influence and control participate more fully in shaping policy reform and implementation? What are some pathways to community ownership, and can they reduce the displacement effects of mixed-income revitalization? What is the best way to frame narratives about mixed-income efforts so that they engage wider audiences and generate public will for greater inclusion and equity? What special populations within mixed-income communities, such as youth, women, and fathers, require a great level of strategic attention and focus?
