In this talk, critical urbanist Manon Vergerio will give a brief background on the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project (AEMP), a web-based interactive mapping project that personalizes eviction data through the evictees’ stories of struggle and resistance. She will discuss how the multimedia collective uses oral history and mapping for housing activism. Participants will listen to a few short clips from the AEMP’s oral history archive and reflect on them through a series of prompts as a way to learn about displacement, housing, and organizing.
Manon Vergerio is an organizer and a critical urbanist whose practice draws across disciplines to illuminate and organize around urban justice issues. Vergerio is a co-founder of the NYC chapter of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project (AEMP).
