Urban Core was originally created by residents of Lower Roxbury and the South End, in Boston, along with organizers from the United Front Against Displacement. This newsletter was specifically created to keep residents informed about developments in the neighborhood and to connect ongoing struggles against gentrification. The purpose of this newsletter is to serve the people. In order for it to be a success we need your feedback, contributions, and even criticisms.
Since its founding Urban Core has circulated around the country, and it is now our national publication, featuring regular contributions from cities across the country. We also previously published a national newsletter called Dispatches Against Displacement.
