Episode 8 – Gentrification, Segregation, and Education
The longest podcast YET but this one is filled to the brim. Come for Julia Torres, a Denver Public Schools teacher who has lived in Denver since 2007 and taught in the schools – and has a very deep, solid, and passion filled perspective on the dangers of Gentrification and Segregation in Education. Joining her is a local Denver activist, writer, podcaster, and Denver historical expert – Bree Davies. Bree’s been doing the work in her communities with pushing back against the shadow of Gentrification and discusses at length with Julia about the connective tissue that brings both of their worlds together. Come for the 2 hours of incredible conversation that’ll have you taking notes page after page with helpful suggestions on how you can help and stay for the hilarious Casa Bonita segment where we share our memories of the beloved Denver site.
