Since October 2016, the Housing Justice League has led a community-based research and organizing campaign focused on the Atlanta BeltLine and its impact on housing affordability and neighborhood stability, looking closely at issues of gentrification and displacement. To date, our members have conducted 31 in-depth interviews with residents living in Southside Atlanta neighborhoods and collected 143 surveys from 19 different BeltLine communities located all around the city.
Since June we've been conducting outreach in neighborhoods along the BeltLine's path, primarily on the Southwest and Southeast trails. We are bringing together residents concerned with issues related to the BeltLine's development and working together to develop a collective action campaign using the research and information we've gathered, and our personal experiences of displacement, to organize for a BeltLine for All, and Development Without Displacement. If you live in a BeltLine neighborhood and are impacted by the rising costs associated with the BeltLine, join our campaign!
