Gentrification and the Housing Crisis: A Leading Cause of Homelessness
What is gentrification? What causes homelessness in Chicago?
In this short documentary, high school senior Alexandria Johnson explores these questions by learning more about gentrification and the homelessness crisis in Chicago. Through her studies, Johnson finds hat homelessness is more of a structural problem than an individual one, and she posits that as a city we need to do more for our Chicago homeless citizens.
