“Pushed Out” is a short explainer video that helps paint a clearer picture of displacement and its long-term impact. It was produced through the collaboration of the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank, the Urban Displacement Project at UC-Berkeley, and The San Francisco Foundation’s Great Communities Collaborative.
Displacement is often a a misunderstood crisis, and there are a few key things that can often be left out of the narrative:
- Displacement happens in many different ways – it cannot be fought effectively until it is recognized it in all its forms. Displacement is not just evictions, but also lots of other pressures that force people to move.
- Displacement is not just a one-time unfortunate event — it has long-lasting impacts for families and their opportunities, with low-income people and people of color often being hardest hit.
- As new investments take shape across our cities and regions, they should help generate healthy and equitable opportunities for everyone.

The above is a summary from the Urban Displacement Project at UC-Berkeley. This video was created with the hope that it will be used in the classroom, in tenant organizing and advocacy, with elected officials, or in how neighborhood change is written or talked about.
