Example 1: Using Community-Level Indicators for Anti-Displacement Work
All-In Cities has compiled a list of community-level indicators they use to gauge the impact of their anti-displacement efforts which can be found here.
They look for positive changes in these indicators:
- Increased number of low-income people and people of color who are in long-term affordable homes.
- Increase in business and home ownership by people of color.
- Increased political participation of people from communities impacted by displacement, including increasing public resources for impacted communities to build power and increase impact in decision-making and political spheres.
- Reduction in evictions and foreclosures.
- Reduction in people who are unhoused.
- Reduction in displacement of local businesses owned by people of color.
- Reduction in cultural displacement.
- Reduction in housing-cost burdens, particularly for women, people of color, Indigenous women, marginalized LGBTQ people, and women of color who are most burdened.
