The Pilsen Project
Pilsen is a well-known community in Chicago, for its strong Hispanic pride. However, Pilsen is losing many of its residents. These residents are forced to leave because they are unable to afford living in Pilsen as a result of gentrification. Pilsen has a long history of severing the Hispanic residents; therefore, this area is in no need for change. To solve these issues of gentrification, I propose that we harvest assistance to residents in Pilsen that wish to live in our community. One resident of Pilsen states, "People should have the right to stay in the communities they love."
