Dear Gentrifier, From East Palo Alto Youth

In letters and poetry, East Palo Alto youth write to their new neighbors about the folks they pass by as they drive by in their new cars and describe who used to live in the homes they now live in. The group from Youth United for Community Action describe the changes their community is undergoing as long time residents are pushed out by wealthier residents who can afford higher rents.
