Melissa Coffman SOCG 371 Section 1 Gentrification in your backyard

This is an editorial about the poverty and housing crisis that has been growing in my backyard. I grew up in the city of Winchester knowing poverty was present, but not knowing really how present it was. I was appalled by what I found and saddened to know that the people that have been affected are some of the very people who have provided my life with value and memory. Gentrification–too close to home.
