New Report: Creating State-Designated Cultural Districts to Preserve Puerto Rican Heritage in Chicago’s Humboldt Park


We are thrilled to announce the release of Keeping Small Businesses In Place: Voices From the Field report by the Small Business Anti-Displacement Network and PRCC! The report highlights the State Cultural District Designation case study in Chicago’s Puerto Rico Town, where the Puerto Rican Cultural Center leads the charge against displacement with this proposed innovative tool. The report showcases the power of culturally relevant technical assistance and community property ownership in preserving small businesses in gentrifying neighborhoods. Watch SBAN’s companion film, We’re Still Here, to learn more about this inspiring work!
